  • CBEC clarifies that service of constructing tube wells for the Govt. by contractors shall be covered under exemption Notification No. 25/2012-ST;
  • Notes that exemption is available to following services provided to the Govt, a local authority or Govt. authority by way of – (a) construction, erection, commissioning, installation, completion, fitting out, repair, maintenance, renovation or alteration of pipeline, conduit or plant for (i) water supply, (ii) water treatment, and (b) water supply;
  • States that phrase “water supply” involves providing users access to source of water, which may be natural or artificial like tanks, wells, tube wells etc;
  • Construction of artificial source will involve activities like drilling, laying of pipes, valves, gauges, fitting of motors, testing so as to eventually result in supply of water; Thus, exemption under entries at Sl. No. 12(e) and 25(a) of Notification No. 25/2012-ST will cover wide range of activities / services provided to a Govt, local authority or Govt. authority, clarifies CBEC
