My client is a government entity which undertakes the work of construction of immovable property on behalf of other government departments/authorities/board/entity etc (herein after referred as govt.).
While allocating the work to my client they mention the cost of construction and fixed percentage of supervision charges, my client then publish and issue the tender to sum other contractor , my client add its supervision charges on what ever the bill is raised by the tender allotee and issue a demand note to govt, for example:
Cost of construction: 100
Cost of Interior : 50
Total Cost : 150
Supervision charges (5% of total cost) : 7.5
My question is whether the invoice should be raised under work contract as 157.5 + GST or invoice should be raised under supervision charges as 7.5 + GST
Further i would like to add that 150 is the actual cost my client only adds its fixed percentage of supervision charges.

Your client is acting as a 'pure agent'. Invoice may be raised as 150 no GST, 7.5 with GST.
If Your client's scope puts him responsible for the construction and his scope is construction, then even if he sub contracts it will be regarded that he is providing works contract service.
Total consideration of Rs 100+50+7.50=157.50. GST is leviable on 157.50.
