It is brought to the notice of the Public that the new Service Tax rate of 14% has been proposed In the Finance Bill, 2015 by the Hon’ble Finance Minister on 28-02-2015. The new Service Tax rate 14% is not effective immediately and shall come into effect only from a date to be notified later. The existing rate of Service Tax is 12.36% (Inclusive Cesses)
It has come to the notice of this office that though the new Service Tax rate of 14% has not yet been given effect, some of the service tax providers have started billing & recovering the amount of Service Tax at the rate of 14% from their customers. This practice is not only completely illegal but amounts to collecting consideration from the general public which is not so required to be collected as Service Tax.
It is therefore appealed to, bring any¬such instance to the notice of Customs, Central Excise & Service Tax Department. The details of the nominated officers of the Department for Vidarbha Region for this purpose are, as under
