During the year 2010-11 and 2011-12 work alloted to construct New CHC Building with P.M Room, Guarrage and Compound Wall, Construction of Dindayal Upadhyay Govt Medical Store. Work Completed and finally amount received during the year 2015-16 and 2016-17. At the relevant period of time One Line is mentioned in the contract that Contract amount is including Service Tax but at the relevant period of time it was under dispute that the said work is exempted or taxable and therefore no Service tax has been discharged. Now party has received the SCN for payment of Service Tax based on the Third party data i.e. Income Tax Recoreds. At the relevant period of time work is being managed and awarded by the project Implementation Unit.

SCNs based on the third party data i.e. Income Tax Department etc. are issued without complete investigation. It is not necessary that the department is always right. One case law is in your favour. Go through the following case law :-

CESTAT Chandigarh has held as under :-

"Demand cannot be confirmed on the basis of Form 26 AS Vs. ST-3 returns without proper basis. Demand set aside. " Party : Raj Mohan Yamunanagar Vs. Commissioner, Panchkula. 2022 (8) TMI 832 - CESTAT CHANDIGARH . Search on google or TMI.

There are many factual aspects to be considered along-with changes in exemption available under service tax over period of time. For example: Serial No. 12 & 12A of Notification No. 25/2012-Service Tax.

Also, legal position prior to 30.06.2012 and thereafter needs to be looked into. And there are retrospective amendments / exemption in some case. for example: Section 102 of the Finance Act, 1994 (32 of 1994) as amended from time to time.

Besides, one must also look for possible Defenses in line with & around, what is explained by Shri Kasturi Sethi Ji in above post.

Considering limited facts available here with no documents to go through and there are multiple legal possibilities to be considered while defending the subject case, I would suggest to get help from an expert for defending your case.

These are ex facie views of mine and the same should not be construed as professional advice / suggestion.

Agree with the above views of the experts. Pls check whether the SCN is barred by limitation also.
