I agree with the advice given by both the experts.CST paid (payable to central Govt) becomes the part of the cost of the purchase of Input or Capital Goods, as the case may be & is not allowed to be set off against the source of revenue of the state govt (i.e, local VAT law).

However, Vice-versa is permitted in most of the state laws.
