Answer ID : 76074

No, renting of vacant land for use as vehicle parking will NOT be exempt from GST as such use of land will not fall under 9986 but under 9972. Sl.No.54 of 12/2017-CT(R) refers to 'services relating to cultivation of plants and .......... by way of - (a) ...... (b) .... (c) ...... (d) renting or leasing of ....... vacant land ......... (e) ...... etc. Please note that only when vacant land is rented or leased 'for purposes of the description first stated', will the exemption apply and not otherwise. Clearly, use of vacant land is not 'relating to cultivation, etc.'. As such, this exemption will not be available.

No renting of vacant land for parking of vehicle will not be covered under the said category and the owner of land should collect GST or collected rent should be treated as inclusive of GST and accordingly GST should be paid.
