Dear Mr. Ponnada
I think you have to pay the both taxes .
01. Service tax under the category of Maintenance or Repairs - however here service provider can charge only for services and not for material used / provided for provision of service. He can take the benefit of notification of 12/2003 S.T. dt 20-06-2003.
02. While providing of services under AMC if the goods are supplied , provided or used say your AMC is inclusive of replacements of parts of UPS or used of distilled water or changing of electrical cables etc. here property of goods has been transferred to you , is the fit case for charging the VAT ( WCT ) . How ever he can charge the VAT ( WCT ) by making bifurcation on invoice itself of Materials and Service Charges and charge VAT on Materials portion.
This is my opinion for correct interpretation see related ACTs, Rules, Notifications etc

could you pls write when wct applicable & on which portion we would charge wct in single bill
