BATTLE WON !! Why are we being charged Service Tax on Electricity Bill?

by: Manas Tripathi on August 8, 2012, 10:32 am in Latest News


Ardee has revoked Service Tax on electricity consumption. Now service will be charged on Admin charges only.

Thanks to the team.


Update: 16-10-2012

Why are we being charged Service Tax on Electricity Bill?


The ST Negative List says transmission & distribution of electricity by transmission or distribution utility, so ST should not be applicable on Electricity Bill .

Since builder is charging 12% Service Charge , they can claim 12.36% on Service charge only , not the full invoice amount...

Thanx everybody for appreciating our efforts.

congrats! and thanks for the effort by RWA and Sushil ji.

Just to inform: on October 27, 2012 D-10 LANE which had new residents almost all the residents became the member of RWA and only few left are in the process of becoming the member and you would like to know that most have taken LIFE membership .. even some tenants have taken life membership after taking approval from their landlord..

So I think we can organize the camps like that to get people join RWA..

Charging more tax than applicable and then not depositing it with the government opens up the possibility of a criminal liability for Ardee....may be a criminal case can be filed at the nearest police station...

On the gate of the complaint office, a notice regard non charging of service tax is pasted, whereby its mentioned that service tax for only last 3 months will be refunded, and that too, when Ardee gets the same refund from government.

One simple question - if Ardee would not have even deposited the wrongfully collected service tax, how does the question arise to get the same refunded from Govt.?? This is another tactic deployed by Ardee to keep the residents waiting till eternity to get the refund saying that its awaited from govt, and eventually people will get tired, and forget about it.

Can the Ardee RWA auditor verify whether Ardee had actually deposited the service tax collected, for the past 5-6 years? All relevant records should be available with Ardee. Also, where did this limit of 3 months come from? Why is Ardee saying to refund only 3 months, and not all the wrongful money collected till now?

61.Niraj Kumar Tiwary said on November 10, 2012, 1:48 pm

That is very good news and I congratulate RWA for winning this battle. Will we get the refund for excess service tax charged till now?

I agree with Mr. Sushil Khanna. The first step is to get everyone to join the RWA. I had avoided becoming a member as I was not too sure what the RWA was doing....but after the recent uproar over maintenance bills, I felt that it was not fair to take benefit of the effort being put in by a sincere RWA without becoming a I signed up.

I have also been telling others in my neighborhood to do the same.

For the longer term, I feel we should do away with life term membership and make it an annual or monthly charge as it is expected that the expenses of running the RWA will keep increasing with inflation and the RWA will need some flexibility in generating the required resources...

khanna sir i know u worked hard on this. The credit goes to u. Thx on behalf of ardee residents.

58.Vivek Kumar Aggarwal said on November 6, 2012, 2:34 pm

I fully agree to the statement of Mr Khanna.... let's all make the RWA a more stronger entity so that it has more muscle and teeth to fight for our causes...

Dear residents,
Only the battle has been won, the war is still going on. WE do not have multi-war head missiles, nor the multi-handed godess Durga.....Hence, one target at a time.
Be patient, soon you will have better results ahead to see.
We want all the residents to join the war.....
Funds are definitely needed, but FUNDAS need to be clear first:
Step 1: join the RWA. Request the expired membership pls be revived......
Step 2: Stop merely criticisng the RWA for the sake of making rough noises,
Step 3: Offer constructive doable suggestions and come forward to take the lead and share the work-load. There is enough space for ALL to make their respective presence felt and make a difference.
Step 4: Spare some time out of your over-bz schedule to adopt ONE agenda-item in trying to make RD a liveable colony.
Step 5: Keep your feet on the ground, irrespective of how high the head is. Be pragmatic and practical. The journey is on a rough road.
Sushil Khanna

What about the refund of the excess service charge extorted by Ardee all these years...if the RWA can get the refund regurgitated by Ardee, I would be happy to surrender it and let the RWA keep the money for its own needs...that would add a lot of much needed funds to the RWA kitty...
