Indian Economy is Back on Track: GST Collection Post Impressive Figures in  October

Indian economy is on the right path for a sustained revival. This is evident from promising numbers coming from different sectors and nothing is more encouraging than the GST collection figures released recently by the Finance Ministry. This indicates that the stagnation in the economy created by the COVID-19 disruption is behind us and India is heading for a robust economic recovery.
According to the data released by the Finance Ministry, GST revenue collection has surpassed Rs 1.05 lakh crore in October 2020. To be more precise, the gross GST collection in this month was Rs 1,05,155 crores. This is 10% more than the collection in October 2019 which stood at Rs 95,379 crore.  Just to add, there has been a 9% rise in revenue from goods imported. Further, 11% rise in revenue from domestic transactions during the same period. The GST collection in October has been the highest in this financial year so far. The highest is since February 2020. This is quite a transformation from the gloomy days of the first quarter of this financial year which registered a 23.9 % contraction.

It is beyond doubt that the nationwide lockdown predictably put blocks on the path of the economic progress of the country earlier this year. But, the recent growth in GST collection indicates that the Indian economy is not only recovering but also is heading for sustained growth. The GST collection in October 2020 is up by 14%, 8%, and 5% that what it is in July, August, and September. The current upsurge in GST inflows can be attributed to the boost in festive demand. Further, a resulting increase in input tax credits. Experts also believe that this upsurge will continue in November as well, thanks to the continuing festivities.

He also said the Government had solicited suggestions from different ministries, trade associations, and industry bodies in this regard. We are hopeful that more good news is due to come our way sooner than later.
