Melas to widen service tax net at Thiruvananthapuram

Our Bureau

Thiruvananthapuram , Oct. 12

THE Thiruvananthapuram Central Excise and Customs Commissionerate will hold Service Tax Melas with a view to registering new assessees and disposing of those cases pending a decision for matters technical.

This was announced here by Mr R.K. Jain, Central Excise and Customer Commissioner.

Service providers within the jurisdiction of the Thiruvananthapuram Commissionerate (contiguous with the districts of Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam and Pathanamthitta districts) who have not remitted service tax so farcan take this opportunity to obtain service tax registration and legalise their business, Mr Jain said.

Accounts revealed and declarations made at the mela will not elicit questions. More than 70 services have been brought under the purview of service tax. Some of these are tutorial colleges, beauty parlours, photo studios, travel agencies, dry cleaners, Internet cafes and cable operators.

The mela will be conducted on two days in Thiruvananthapuram - on October 12 and 28, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Details can be had from the Service Tax Range, Thiruvananthapuram Division, or on phone 0471 - 2337040/41/42.
