Dear SP,

as per my openion, it does not falls under "MANPOWER SUPPLY" or "TRANSPORT OF GOODS BY A ROAD", 

I think that , you are asking for corporate firm side means, it does not falls under "REVERSE CHARGE MECHANISM' also.

Experts openion also welcome for furthur clarification.

Dear SP,

                  As per my opinion since introduction of negative list regime in service tax section 65A which govern the ruling of classification of services has lost its relevance. It  was once deleted but only for statiscal and administrative purposes it was brought back. Since the services provided by your client is not covered in either negative list or mega exemption notification  it is taxable . But may be exemption provided to subcontractor can become applicable (i am not fully sure due to lack of input provided by you).And since no specific abatement is given to this typr of service it will be taxable at 12.36%( subject to limit of Rs. 10 lakh)
