Some times it happens that an assessee pays service tax with interest without opting for litigation to buy peace and calm.
Sometimes, it is possible that the activity was not taxable or was taxable but in different manner i.e as per the wordings it appears it is works contract in nature etc.
Therefore, it is the detailed facts which would enable me to put my view on this very issue.
