As per the amendment made by Finance Act 2010, vacant land given on lease for construction of building to be used for furtherance of business or commerce is liable to service tax under 'Renting of immovable property service'.   In my view, A Ltd acquiring lease of land for construction of flats would be treated as using it of business or commerce and thus subject to service tax.  Thus, local authority collecting lease rent is liable to collect and pay service tax.  The service tax on local authority would not change under all the three scenarios as the  lease rent paid to the local authority remains same.
