However, it has started improving since July. Officials associated with GST said that this time the GST collection can be more than one lakh crore rupees.
GST is expected to rise
According to available data, it is estimated that GST is now expected to increase, as economic activity in the country has increased after the lockdown opens. Business is becoming normal. Officials said domestic demand has increased due to the festive season. This is seeing a boom in the market.

Central government can get relief
The central government can also be happy with the rise in GST. Because the central government is taking a loan of Rs 1.1 lakh crore to compensate the GST of Rs 2.35 lakh crore for the states. The lockdown was implemented from 25 March due to Corona in the country. The manufacturing and services sector was severely affected due to this lockdown. This is because all services were temporarily shut down.
The government will take a special loan
On the other hand, the government has arranged a special loan to meet the shortfall in GST collection in 2020-21. A total of 21 states and two union territories have opted for this arrangement. According to the statement, this loan is taken at 5.19 percent interest and its time frame is for 3 to 5 years. By the way, if you look at the data from June to September, the figure has not reached one lakh crore in any month. Even in 2019, out of these four months, only one lakh crore GST collection was done in July.
