India’s gross GST revenue collection in June crossed the Rs 1.61 lakh crore mark, registering a 12% increase over the corresponding figure for the same month last year, according to figures released by the Ministry of Finance on Saturday.
During the month, the revenues from domestic transactions (including import of services) are 18% higher than the revenues from these sources during the same month last year reflecting the robust growth in the country’s economic activity.
