There is no specific exemption available for services provided to religious trusts. Security services if provided by non-corporate to a registered person will be liable under RCM.

In my opinion Tirumala Thirupathi Devasthanam is not a company incorporated under Company's Act. Hence any service provided to it is liable to gst under forward charge since there is specific exemption from gst in respect of services provided to Tirumala Thirupathi Devasthanam.

The constituion of TTD is Trust and TTD is also registered under GST Act. Hence, Security Services would fall under 9(3) and RCM is applicable for which TTD would pay. With regard to Repairs and Maintenance Services, the same is not under 9(3) and hence the service provider is liable to pay. There is no exemption with respect to above services provided to TTD.

Dear Mr. Kiran Kumar,

1) The tax rate to be applied on such work contract is specified in Notification No. 20/2017- Integrated Tax (Rate) dated 22nd August 2017 wherein “Composite supply of works contract as defined in clause (119) of section 2 of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017, supplied by way of construction, erection, commissioning, installation, completion, fitting out, repair, maintenance, renovation, or alteration of a road, bridge, tunnel, or terminal for road transportation for use by the general public” is taxable at the rate of 12%. In other cases it may be 18%. However you can avail ITC on inputs and net payable.
