Here is the text of notification no. 8 dated 28/06/2017 which exempted purchase from RCM but provided that where purchase is more than 5000 in a day GST under RCM was to be paid.

Below line is deleted from earlier notification, that means no RCM.

Provided that the said exemption shall not be applicable where the aggregate value of such supplies of goods or service or both received by a registered person from any or all the suppliers, who is or are not registered, exceeds five thousand rupees in a day.
