If any service charges or  administrative charges or entry  charges are recovered in addition to interest on a loan, advance or a  deposit, would such charges be also a part of the exemption?

No. The services of loans, advances or deposits are exempt in so far as the  consideration is represented by way of interest or discount. Any charges or amounts collected over and above the interest or discount would represent taxable consideration and hence liable to GST.
