The answer to Q.1 is yes.

Q.2: - If MIDC is a Governmental entity then XYZ is required to pay gst under reverse charge. According to para 2 (zfa) of Notification No. 12/2017- Central Tax (Rate) dated 28.6.2017 as amended “Governmental Authority” means an authority or a board or any other body, -

(i) set up by an Act of Parliament or a State Legislature; or

(ii) established by any Government,

with 90 per cent or more participation by way of equity or control, to carry out any function entrusted to a Municipality under article 243W of the Constitution or to a Panchayat under article 243G of the Constitution.

Dear Sir,

Pl. go through Notification No.3/18-CT(R) dated 25.1.18 amending original Notification No.13.17-CT(R) dated 28.6.17 (RCM). MIDC is neither Govt. nor local authority. Hence not covered under RCM. Corporation is neither Govt. nor local authority. MIDC is a corporate body. A corporation formed under an Act is not Govt.

Even if all shares of a company are owned by Govt., the company is not the department of Govt.-----Supreme Court

Thanks for the kind advice by Rajgopalan and Kasturi ji.

In my view, MIDC will have to charge GST as per Section 7, Schedule II, Sr.No. 2(a) i.e. any lease, tenancy, easement, licence to occupy land is a supply of services. Your kind views please

Dear Sir,

I agree with you. Also go through serial no.5 (a) of Schedule-II. Renting of Immovable property also includes lease. Just for knowledge sake. Serial no. 2(a) should be preferred.
