I want to ask you one thing that one of our client has booked lots of air tickets and vendor charges service tax approx Rs. 200/- to Rs. 300/- which client consider as input and i have no problem in this regard. But vendor is also providing air travel insurance from TATA AIG for which payment made by the vendor and then claim from the client. As the client take this insurance for different-2 period depends on period of his travelling time overthere. On receipt of travel insurance, there is service tax charged by TATA Aig. My question is that can the client avail the credit of such cenvat towards premium paid for air travel. <br> Regards, Harpreet
