    GST collections for June 2020 stand at Rs 90,917 crore
    Goods and service tax (GST) collections for June 2020 clocked Rs 90,917 crore at gross levels, 9% lower than the same month last year, the department of revenue said Wednesday.

    The collections are higher than those recorded in April and May – the peak months of lockdown due to the Covid 19 pandemic – where GST collection for April was Rs 32,294 crore and Rs 62,009 crore for May.

    However, for both months, the collections were lower than those in 2019. Collections in April were down 72% on-year and 38% down on-year in May.


    For the month of June, of total collections of Rs 90,917 crore, CGST was Rs 18,980 crore, SGST was Rs 23,970 crore, IGST was Rs 40,302 crore, including Rs 15,709 crore collected on import of goods and Cess was Rs 7,665 crore, including Rs 607 crore collected on import of goods.

    The government said GST collection for the first quarter of the year was 41% less than the revenue collected during the same quarter last year, but a large number of taxpayers still have time to file their return for the month of May, 2020 till early this month.

    “Since government has allowed a relaxed time schedule for filing of GST returns, returns of the month of April, March as well as some returns of February got filed during June, 2020 and some returns of May, 2020, which would have otherwise got filed in June, will get filed during first few days of July,” the department said.

    It would be inappropriate to analyse data during covid19 times vis a vis with normal periods. Let us wait for few more months for getting in to any comparisons.

    Lockdown happened around 24 March how can April tax collections be so less it means people pay there taxes late because of Lockdown and that's why June collections are high we have to wait until next month to see where we stand.
