GST will be charged on such water charges since it becomes part of rent.

And even if it is separately billed then also chargeable since no exemption available.

Notification No.2/2017-Central Tax (Rate)

Sl No.99 Chapter / Heading / Sub-heading / Tariff item -2201

water is exempted.

per my opinion separate invoice for water will get gst exempt.

If any one is with different view, pl elaborate.

Exemption is available when water sold as goods and for that the person charging water charges must own the goods. In most cases these charges are of the nature of services being provided therefore exemption not available.
