During the month, revenues from import of goods was 39% higher and the revenues from domestic transaction (including import of services) are 19% higher than the revenues from these sources during the same month last year.  

The GST revenues for October have been the second highest ever since introduction of GST, second only to that in April 2021, which related to year-end revenues. 

“This is very much in line with the trend in economic recovery. This is also evident from the trend in the e-way bills generated every month since the second wave. The revenues would have still been higher if the sales of cars and other products had not been affected on account of disruption in supply of semi-conductors,” said the Ministry.

The revenues have also been aided due to the efforts of the State and Central tax administration resulting in increased compliance over previous months, it said. 

In addition to action against individual tax evaders, this has been a result of the multipronged approach followed by the GST Council, It added.
