The Reverse Charge was introduced in Service Tax vide Budget of the year 2005-2006. At that point of time there was only one service which was covered under Reverse Charge. However, with the passage of time this list has been expanded and at present this list contains 11 services into it which covers both Reverse Charge and Partial Reverse Charge.
