Govt notification on no service tax for ready to move flat

Hi all,

I think there is a govt rule that if I am purchasing a ready possession flat from a builder, then the builder cannot charge Service Tax and Vat from the buyer (because it is not a service anymore) on the paid amount. But If it is under construction flat when I make the payment, only then they are allowed to charge the Service Tax + Vat. 

So far so good. My question is - Does anyone have (or can I get it from somewhere) the notification or gazette from the government which clearly mentions this? I need to take this notification and take it to the builder from whom I am purchasing the ready to move in flat, on which he is insisting that I need to pay him Service Tax + Vat.

Any help will be appreciated !

 In terms of Section 66B of the Finance Act, 1994, as amended from time to time, service tax will be leviable on all services provided in the taxable territory by a person to another for a consideration other than the services specified in the Service Tax Negative List.


 Section 66E – Declared services

[The following shall constitute declared services, namely:—

(a) renting of immovable property;

(b) construction of a complex, building, civil structure or a part thereof, including a complex or building intended for sale to a buyer, wholly or partly, except where the entire consideration is received after issuance of completion-certificate by the competent authority.
