You may avail the CENAT credit as per the provisions of CENVAT credit Rules, 2004 as amended time to time.  In the case of reverse charge mechanism, the challan would be the appropriate document to avail the CENVAT credit.

Cenvat credit eligibility is subject to the exclusion clauses in CCR. For example, motor car hire charges, Works contract related to Construction services, laying foundation  or making structures of capital goods etc are not eligible for credit availment

In terms of Rule 2(l) of CCR, 2004 only services "used" for providing output service are eligible for credit. This concept read with Board's Letter F.No. 354/148/2009-TRU Dated 16-7-2009 (issued in the context of admissibilityof credit of tax paid u/s 66A under reverse charge),  it should be understood that these services should be used for or should have nexus with the output services mentioned by you. Secondly, you have to take into consideration the exclusion categories like rent-a-cab, construction services services etc. Accordingly, from the info given, it seems that Motor car hire charges and any construction related services under works contract are not eligible at the very outset and eligiblity of other services depend on their nexus with the output service.
