Rate cuts in November result in fall of GST collections

Rate cuts in November result in fall of GST collections

New Delhi, Dec 26 - Falling for the second consecutive month, the total revenue collected under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) touched Rs 80,808 crore in November -- down from Rs 83,346 crore in October, possibly due to rate cuts in November.

GST collection in September was over Rs 92,000 crore. 

"The total collection under GST for the month of December, 2017 has been Rs 80,808 crore till December 25," the Finance Ministry said in a statement. The December collection actually relates to taxes paid for the month of November.

While the downward trend in GST collection started from October, the November figure may have been impacted by the major revamp of the GST tax structure brought in during the November 10 Guwahati meeting. In that meeting, the GST Council decided to slash tax slabs of 178 items from 28% to 18% while also reducing tax on several items in other slabs from mid-November ahead of the Gujarat elections.

The GST collection for the month of July was over Rs 95,000 crore while for August, it was more than Rs 91,000 crore. September's indirect tax collection stood at over Rs 92,150 crore.

However, there was a sharp fall of around 10% in the October collection when the total collections declined to Rs 83,346 cr. The government had then said that since implementation of some of the main features of GST such as matching of returns, e-way bill as well as reverse charge mechanism had been postponed, the tax compliance may not be up to the mark.

A meeting of the GST Council was then called on December 16 via tele-conference during which the nod for an early implementation of e-Way Bill was given for inter-state movement of items from February 1 and uniform mandatory compliance from June 1 next year.

The Finance Ministry statement said that of the Rs 80,808 crore, Rs 13,089 crore have been collected as Central GST (CGST), Rs 18,650 crore as State GST (SGST), Rs 41,270 crore as Integrated GST (IGST) and Rs 7,798 crore as compensation cess.

"Further, Rs 10,348 crore is being transferred from IGST to CGST account and Rs 14,488 crore from IGST to SGST account by way of settlement of funds on account of cross utilization of IGST credit for payment of CGST and SGST, respectively, or due to inter-state B2C transactions," it added.
