13. Transfer of Land etc. by way of inheritance, testament, gift etc.

Clause 5 of Schedule III of CGST Act, 2017 as specified in Section 7 provides that Sale of land and, subject to clause (b) of paragraph 5 of Schedule II, sale of building would be treated as an activity or transactions which shall be treated neither as a supply of goods nor a supply of services.

Issue

Sale does not include transfer of land by way of will, inheritance, testament etc. Such transactions if kept out of the purview may create problems and confusion.

Suggestion

It is suggested that transfer of land by modes other than sale also be included as an activity or transactions which shall be treated neither as a supply of goods nor a supply of services.
