Service tax exemption for Janata Personal - Service tax - Circular No. 133/2/2011
January, 20th 2011

Circular No. 133 / 2 / 2011 ST

F.No.332/36/2010-TRU

Government of India

Ministry of Finance

Department of Revenue

Tax Research Unit

North Block, New Delhi

18th January 2011

To

            Chief Commissioners of Central Excise and Service Tax (All),

            Director General (Service Tax),

            Director General (Central Excise Intelligence),        

            Director General (Audit),

            Commissioners of Service Tax (All),

            Commissioners of Central Excise and Service Tax (All).

 

Madam/Sir,

Subject: - Service tax exemption for Janata Personal Accident Policy reg.

           

 A clarification has been sought as to the scope and meaning of the description namely Janata Personal Accident Policy (JPAP) appearing in the Notification No. 3/1994-ST dated 30.06.1994. 

 

2.         The issue has been examined.  The representation seeking clarification arises in the context of customized group insurance policy schemes known as JPAP, floated by various insurance companies as specified by state governments, to extend risk cover to certain specified target populations, under varying terms of insurance. Generally, a standard JPAP is an individual oriented policy with a fixed sum assured. The sum assured in these JPAP policies is often as low as Rs. 25, 000/- , so that even people without regular income can afford to purchase a risk cover for themselves. For the insurers, JPAP offers a vehicle to fulfill the rural or social sector obligation prescribed by the Insurance Regulatory Development Authority (IRDA). Since a description of  JPAP Policy is not available in the relevant notification, it is clarified that customized group JPAP insurance  schemes floated by various insurance companies as per the specifications of state governments concerned, to extend risk cover to target populations,  and to fulfill the prescribed rural or social sector obligation, are covered by the subject service tax exemption.

 

3.         Trade Notice/Public Notice may be issued to the field formations accordingly.

 

4.         Please acknowledge the receipt of this circular. Hindi version to follow.
