If yes, what will be classification under GST and what will be applicable rate of GST?
The basic issue before us is, whether GST is leviable on sale of TDR/ FSI received as consideration for surrendering the joint rights in land in terms of Development Control Regulations.
GST is payable at the rate of 18% (9% + 9%) on transfer of development rights or FSI (including additional FSI), under Sl. No. 16, item (iii) of Notification No. 11/2017 - Central Tax (Rate) dated 28-06-2017 (Heading 9972).

No. 16, item (iii) of Notification No. 11/2017 - C.T. (Rate) dated 28.06.2017 (Heading 9972). — Vilas Chandanmal Gandhi, In Re…  20 TAXLOK.COM 089 (AAR-Maharashtra)
