Private coaching for CA exam is not eligible this exemption. Coaching class conducted by ICAI qualifies for this exemption.

However notification gives exemption to any commercial coaching center and not only to recognized commercial center. Kindly explain.

As per my view, a commercial coaching or training centres which also having the authority to grant of a certificate or diploma or degree or any educational qualification, is exempt from ST. In your case only providing coaching classes and not has any authority to issue such certificate. Hope, it clarifies you.
