Collections grow 33.7% in indirect tax, 10.9% in direct tax

New Delhi: The latest tax revenue numbers up to 31 January indicate a healthy growth of 33.7% in indirect tax and 10.9% in direct tax collections. As against the annual BE target for tax collections of Rs 14.49 lakh crore, the government has received Rs 10.66 lakh crore, which is 73.5% of the BE target.

Looking at the trend, it appears that, as far as indirect tax collections are concerned, the government may get more than Rs 40,000 crore over and above the BE target for 2015-16 while there might be an equal amount of shortfall in direct tax collections. However, both the collections put together, it is expected that the annual BE target of revenue collections for the current year will be met without any shortfall.
