A. Dear Mr Mehta,

The builder could have collected VAT during pre GST REGIME and claim the same carry forward VAT Inputs in GST TRAN 1 when the idea of GST was implemented.
Since the builder is now raising GST invoices and VAT, CST, has already been abolished as a part of Indirect Taxes the builder cannot charge or claim VAT neither he can take the benefit of the same in TRAN 1.
