One of the most contentious issues under the service tax as well as the GST regime has
been the scope of “agreeing to the obligation to refrain from an act, or to tolerate an act
or situation, or to do an act” appearing in Section 66E(e) of the Finance Act, 1994 and
Schedule II of the CGST Act, 2017.
