Sir, we all the residents of Reliance Residency, Ambernath (East) - 421 501 have been provided notice for payment of VAT. We would like to know whether this VAT is to be borne by the builder or flat owners. What is the actual practice. Please suggest reasonable solution. What to do now. Please provide me guidelines in this regard. What is the actual law. Whether it is really to be borne by flat owners, then I will also pay the VAT, but please suggest who is responsible for payment of VAT and upto what percentage of Agreement Value, so that we are not cheated by the buillder. Please also suggest what the rate at which maintenance charges to be charged by builders to flat owners. So that we should pay the mainteance charges at reasonbale rates to the builder. Please help what to do, whether to pay VAT and mainteance charges as it is to the builder or we should wait for your reply.
