June GST collection at Rs 95,610 cr up 1,600 cr: Adhia

New Delhi, July 1 (IANS) Revenue collection under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in June crossed Rs 95,000 crore and was higher than the average monthly collection of Rs 89,885 crore during 2017-18, the government said on Sunday.

The June GST collection at Rs 95,610 crore exceeded the previous month’s revenue of Rs 94,016 crore, Finance Secretary Hasmukh Adhia announced at an event here to mark the first anniversary of the roll out of India’s new indirect tax regime.
“The June GST figure of Rs 95,610 crore represents an increase of Rs 1,600 crore in collections between May and June and is further proof of stabilising of the new tax regime.

“The April GST collection of Rs 1,03,000 crore was because of the March (financial year-end) effect. Otherwise average monthly collection for the last fiscal was Rs 89,885 crore,” he said.

The Secretary said last month that the number of returns filed for April had also gone up to 62.46 lakh, as against 60.47 lakh filed for March, and that the higher April collections also reflected better compliance after introduction of e-way bills for transportation of goods.

In a video address shown at the event, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that a most significant aspect of GST was the increase in collections in the last fiscal by 11.9 per cent over the revenue collection during the pre-GST regime.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday congratulated the people of the nation as the roll-out of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) plan completed one year.
