    I am a defence employee and planning to purchase a flat under construction. I would like to know whether defence personnel are exempted from payment of service tax.

    Sir as per service tax notification the flat on obtaining completion certificate from competent authority is sold is exempted from service tax and the buyer not to charged ST and not VAT is to charged on immovable property. However when it is under construction and the developer has received money for it then they ST and VAT are leviable. Please kindly confirm in the light of regulations in force as I am planning to buy a constructed house so that I will be saving money on account of ST and VAT as suggested by one of my friends.
