March 2024 witnessed the second-highest collection of Gross Goods and Services Tax (GST) revenue ever recorded at Rs 1.78 lakh crore, with a notable year-on-year growth of 11.5%.

This surge was primarily propelled by a significant rise in GST collection from domestic transactions, which experienced a robust growth rate of 17.6%. GST revenue net of refunds for March 2024 amounted to Rs 1.65 lakh crore, indicating a remarkable growth of 18.4% over the same period last year.

Integrated Goods and Services Tax (IGST) also witnessed a significant uptick, totaling Rs 87,947 crore, inclusive of Rs 40,322 crore collected on imported goods.

These positive indicators are reflective of the overall trend observed throughout the financial year 2023-24, with CGST amounting to Rs 3,75,710 crore, SGST at Rs 4,71,195 crore, and IGST reaching Rs 10,26,790 crore.

These encouraging figures underscore the success of various initiatives aimed at expanding the tax base and enhancing compliance over the past few years.

The Goods and Services Tax (GST), implemented nationwide from July 1, 2017, has played a pivotal role in streamlining the taxation system. States were guaranteed compensation for any revenue loss resulting from GST implementation for a period of five years, as per the provisions outlined in the GST (Compensation to States) Act, 2017.
