Input Tax Credit — In the instant case, advance ruling sought on following matter—
Whether credit is available on input tax paid on lease rent during pre-operative period for the leasehold land on which the resort is being constructed to be used for furtherance of business, when the same is capitalized and treated as capital expenditure.
Held that—Appellant is constructing the Eco Resort on his own account in course of furtherance of its business of providing hospitality service, for which one of the input service availed is lease rental service. The ambit of the blocked credit as per clause (d) of sub-section (5) of section 17 is broad as it includes such goods or services or both when used in the course of furtherance of business. So clause (d) of sub-section (5) of section 17 restricts the Appellant availing input tax credit on lease rental paid.
