From India, Visakhapatnam
Abatement stands for concession in service tax. Here service tax is not imposed on full value of service. but on part of service e.g. if invoice for servicing is to be raised for Rs.1000.00 and abatement of 75% allowed (e.g. in GTA Services) then service tax will be imposed only on Rs.250.00.
There are many services where abatement is allowed, but in such cases no cenvat or input tax credit will be allowed.
