New Delhi, Aug 2 (KNN) The Goods and Services (GST) revenue collection for the month of July was Rs 1,16,393 crore, according to data released by the Finance Ministry.

''The revenues for the month of July 2021 are 33 per cent higher than the GST revenues in the same month last year. During the month, revenues from import of goods were 36 per cent higher and the revenues from domestic transactions (including import of services) were 32 per cent higher than the revenues from these sources during the same month last year,'' the data added.

The GST collection for the returns filed between 1st July to 5th July2021 of Rs 4,937 crore had also been included in the GST collection in the press note for the month of June 2021 Since taxpayers were given various relief measures in the form of waiver/reduction in interest on delayed return filing for 15 days for the return filing month June21 for the taxpayers with the aggregate turnover upto Rs 5 crore in the wake of COVID pandemic second wave, it said.

The government has settled Rs 28,087 crore to CGST and Rs 24100 crore to SGST from IGST as regular settlement. The total revenue of Centre and the States after regular settlement in the month of July’ 2021 is Rs 50284 crore for CGST and Rs 52641 crore for the SGST.

GST collection, after posting above Rs 1 lakh crore mark for eight months in a row, dropped below Rs 1 lakh crore in June 2021 as the collections during the month of June 2021 predominantly related to the month of May 2021 and during May 2021, most of the States/UTs were under either complete or partial lock down due to COVID.

''With the easing out of COVID restrictions, the GST collection for July 2021 has again crossed Rs 1 lakh crore, which clearly indicates that the economy is recovering at a fast pace. The robust GST revenues are likely to continue in the coming months too,'' the Finance Ministry said.
