The buoyancy in indirect tax collections during the last fiscal was attributed to partial withdrawal of economic stimulus measures in the Budget 2010-11, wherein finance minister Pranab Mukherjee raised excise duty by 2% to 10% as part of a plan to gradually withdraw the incentives given to industry to combat the impact of the global financial meltdown
New Delhi: The government today said indirect tax collections for FY10-11 have exceeded the revised estimate of Rs3.34 lakh crore for the fiscal on the back of strong economic activities and the partial withdrawal of fiscal stimulus measures, reports PTI.
According to Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) chairman S Dutt Majumder, the finance ministry expects at least Rs7,000 crore more than the revised estimate for the last fiscal.
"... Over and above the revised estimate, we expect Rs7,000 crore minimum, it may be more also," Mr Majumder told reporters on the sidelines of an Assocham event.
He further said the finance ministry has exceeded the revised target by Rs6,000 crore, with the total indirect tax collection at Rs3.40 lakh crore already.
"I expect more. This does not take into consideration customs collection of 30th and 31st March. That should be another Rs1,000 crore," Mr Majumder added.
He said that customs collection up to 29th March this year stood at Rs1.32 lakh crore, while the service tax mop-up was Rs70,200 crore.
The upward revision in the tax collection target was due to robust economic growth in the last fiscal. The country's gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow 8.6% in 2010-11.
The buoyancy in indirect tax collections during the last fiscal can also be attributed to partial withdrawal of economic stimulus measures in the Budget 2010-11.
In the Budget 2010-11, finance minister Pranab Mukherjee raised excise duty by 2% to 10% as part of a plan to gradually withdraw the incentives given to industry to combat the impact of the global financial meltdown.
