About the recent trend in GST collection

  • With the easing out of COVID restrictions, GST collection for July 2021 has again crossed ₹1 lakh crore.
  • The government called the collections a sign of a rapid economic recovery from the second COVID-19 wave, though economists said they indicate an ‘incomplete’ rebound.
  • The July 2021 collections were 33% higher than July 2020, with GST collected on the import of goods rising 36% and domestic transactions (including import of services) growing by 32%.
  • There is a heartening sequential increase, as well as a substantial year-on-year growth, but GST collections remain well below the all-time high recorded in April 2021 (1.41 lakh crore Rs.).
  • While most States reported positive growth in tax collections compared to July 2020, there were significant variations — Odisha and Jharkhand reported a 54% uptick, followed by Haryana (53%) and Maharashtra at 51%, while Tamil Nadu and Gujarat clocked 36% growth.
