I wanted to know if the serve, the one you executed in the Ping Skills trick serve video (at 0:40), was a let,for:  after touching the receiver's court returns in the direction of the net;  comes to rest on the receiver's court; 

 thus says the ittf hand book.

Thanking you in anticipation

Hi Deepak,

This rule is only referring to players in a wheelchair.  So for standing players it is perfectly OK to do this serve.

Hi Yasir,

At the higher level, the ball travels too slowly and a good player will be able to step around and make a strong shot against it.
