The main objective is to construct the factory for manufacture of stainless steel coaches. This has been given on turn-key basis though different parts of the contract are given for purpose of administrative and execution. This is a composite supply.

It is seen from the tender document that the scope of work is covering all the works specified from Schedule I to Schedule VI as per LOA with an approximate estimated cost of works as Rs 243.28 Cr.

On perusal of the LOA, it is seen that the works covered under each Schedule has separate consideration specified:

> Schedule I,II,III are Mechanical, Civil and Electrical works consisting of supply, construction, Erection, Installation, etc ;

> Schedule IV – Up-Rooting and disposal of Condemned M & P’s;

> The agreement for the CAMC-Schedule VI(a) and (b) -shall be entered into after the completion of the warranty period

The effective date of contract will be 29.06.2017 which is the date of issue of LOA. The works are to be completed in all are aspects within 20 months from this date i.e. 01.03.2019.

It is evident that based on a single bid, the entire works of ‘Modernization of ICF for Complete Switch-over to Stainless steel coach manufacturing-Phase II’ has been allotted to the Applicant.

4.2 The Applicant has executed contract agreement for the work of ‘Construction of shed, provision of M&Ps in ICF Shell/Furnishing Division, retro-fitment / reconditioning /re-sitting / disposal of obsolete M&Ps of shell division and associated Electrical works on turn-key basis’ vide Contract Agreement No. ICF/Complete Switchover Project Phase-II/T-1, dated 19.08.2017. It is seen from the contract agreement that it is executed between the President of India acting through Chief Mechanical Engineer/Integral Coach Factory Chennai. The Applicant will be paid an advance on the total contract value on signing of contract agreement and various preliminary works. Separate payment schedules are indicated for supply of machine, plant and equipment’s including commissioning spares in Schedule I (Rs 169.67 Cr), erection and commissioning of all civil structures in Schedule II (Rs 37.81 Cr), supply of electrical equipment including commissioning spares in Schedule III (Rs 233.07 Cr). For up-rooting and disposal of condemned M&Ps in Schedule IV (Rs 4.35 Cr), the Applicant is required to pay the consideration to ICF. Separate agreements for Wet leasing of Robotic spot welding machine; Laser cutting and welding machine’ as per Schedule V (a) and V (b) have been entered into vide agreement No. ICF/CPM/CSP-II/T-l/WET-LEASING/RSW dt. 09.08.2017 and ICF/CPM/CSP-II/T-l/WET-LEASING/LCW dt. 09.08.2017 -and payment schedule is as per those agreements. A separate agreement in respect of CAMC for 5 years is to be entered into after completion of warranty period. They involve intermediate stage payments for the works and they are to be treated as advance against final payment Final bills are to be raised in respect of each of the Schedules. Payment shall be due within 30 days from date of receipt of invoice. The price schedule annexed to the contract agreement specifies the value for each of the Schedules.

It is seen from invoice being raised that separate invoices are being raised for each Schedules and each invoice specifies the distinct works covered in the respective Schedule with distinct values to each such works. From the invoices submitted for Schedule I Mechanical Schedule II Civil and Schedule III Electrical, it is shown as “Composite Supply of Works Contract” and 6% CGST and 6% SGST is being charged.

5.1 From the above, it is seen that the tender and Letter of acceptance is for the ‘Modernization of ICF for Complete Switch-over to Stainless steel coach manufacturing-Phase II, consisting of construction of shed, provision of M & Ps in ICF Shell/Furnishing Division, retro-fitment / re-conditioning / re-sitting / disposal of obsolete M & Ps of shell division including wet leasing of M & Ps and associated Electrical works on turn-key basis’. However, separate agreements are executed for (1) indicated for supply of machine, plant and equipment’s including commissioning spares in Schedule I, erection and commissioning of all civil structures in Schedule II, supply of electrical equipment including commissioning spares in Schedule III, for up-rooting and disposal of condemned M&Ps in Schedule IV (2) Wet leasing of Robotic spot welding machine; Laser cutting and welding machine as per Schedule V(a) and V (b) and (3) Comprehensive Annual Maintenance Contract (CAMC) Mechanical & Electrical. Therefore, we hold that the works based on different agreements are to be considered as separate supply and the classification of supply is to be arrived at after considering the supply involved in each of the agreement.

Section 2(30) of CGST Act, “Composite Supply” means a supply made by a taxable person to a recipient consisting of two or more taxable supplies of goods or services or both, or any combination thereof, which are naturally bundled and supplied in conjunction with each other in the ordinary course of business, one of which is a principal supply.

Section 2(119) of CGST ACT 2017, “works contract” means a contract for building, construction, fabrication, completion, erection, installation, fitting out, improvement, modification, repair, maintenance, renovation, alteration or commissioning of any immovable property wherein transfer of property in goods (whether as goods or in some other form) is involved in the execution of such contract;

As per Para 6 of Schedule II of CGST Act 2017, Works contract is a composite supply and should be treated as supply of service.

5.2 In respect of the agreement for erection, commissioning, installation of plant and machinery for a factory to manufacture stainless steel coaches covering Schedule I, II , III, it is for supply of machine, plant and equipment’s including commissioning spares in Schedule I, erection and commissioning of all civil structures in Schedule II, supply of electrical equipment including commissioning spares in Schedule III, with a total consideration of approximately Rs 228.71 Cr by the Applicant to ICF, Chennai. It is seen that this agreement is for supply of more than one taxable supply involving supply of goods and services such as machinery (both mechanical and electrical), construction, erection, installation, commissioning service etc. These supplies are bundled together in the agreement which is on turnkey basis and are required to be supplied together. Further, these activities are for an immovable property which is the factory here and involves transfer of property of all the goods involved in executing it. Therefore, this constitutes a supply of composite supply of works contract by the Applicant which is a supply of service as per Schedule II of CGST Act 2017.

The supply for up-rooting and disposal of condemned M&Ps, under Schedule IV, is made by ICF to the Applicant for a consideration. Advance ruling as per Section 95(a) of the CGST is in relation to the supply of goods or services or both being undertaken or proposed to be undertaken by the Applicant. In this case, the Applicant is a recipient and hence, we are not examining this transaction under this order.

The agreement for wet leasing of Robotic spot welding machine and Laser cutting and welding machine as per Schedule V(a) and Schedule V(b) for a period of 10 years is a supply of right to use the equipment along with manpower sendee , maintenance service etc. As multiple taxable supplies of services are involved, this is a composite service of service. However, this is not a works contract as there is no immovable property nor transfer of title of goods is involved. As per explanatory notes to classification of services for SAC 9973

9973 Leasing or rental services with or without operator

This heading includes: – rental or operational leasing of machinery and equipment and personal and household goods, with or without operator Note: The duration of the rental service is irrelevant for its classification

The agreement of wet leasing of machinery falls under this classification of SAC 997319 for leasing of machinery with or without operator etc.

The agreement for Comprehensive Annual Maintenance Contract (CAMC) of Mechanical & Electrical under Schedule VI (a) and VI (b) will involve supply of goods, spares etc. and services and hence is a composite supply. This maintenance is in relation to the factory being erected, commissioned involving transfer of goods and hence is a composite supply of works contract which is a supply of service as per Schedule II of CGST Act 2017.

5.3 The clarification sought is whether the benefit of SI.No.3 (v) (a) & 3(vi) (a) of notification no. 11/2017 as amended vide Notification 20/2017 – Central Tax (Rate) is applicable to subject works.
