Withdraw the GST applied on the Co-Operative Housing Society Maintenance Payments

Petitioning Chief Justice of India:



As we know that 18% GST is made applicable on the maintenance payment made by very own members of the cooperative housing society to the same co-operative housing society managed by the same members themselves.

I feel that this decision of the Government is not in line with the basic concept and principles of co-operative housing societies in India.

Hence, through this PIL, I appeal to Honorable Supreme Court of India to withdraw the GST (Goods and Service Tax ) applied by the Government of India on the Maintenance Payment made by very own members of the cooperative housing society to the same co-operative housing society managed by the same members of the housing society themselves.

There are following valid questions to be considered before making GST applicable to the maintenance payment of the flats / house in Co-operative Housing societies:

1. The Co-Operative Housing / Residential societies in India are maintained by the very own members of these co-operative societies.

These members of the societies come forward voluntarily to serve themselves through their own services to their own flats / houses in the society.

These members are neither paid any salary nor monitory benefits for their services provided by them to themselves in the co-operative societies.

Meaning, members are providing their own services to themselves.

So, if I am providing the service to me and that service is also consumed by me only, then why should I pay the GST tax on it to the Government for the same?
