Record GST Collection Shows Our Economy In Recovery Path: Finance Secretary

New Delhi: Finance secretary of India AB Pandey said that the huge collection of Goods and Service Tax (GST) shows that India’s economy is on recovery path and government should be given credit for bringing changes at the system level for better compliance.

“Record-high GST collection of over Rs 1.15 lakh cr in Dec is because our economy is on path of recovery. We’ve brought many changes at system level for better compliance. We’re taking targeted action against those who have discrepancies in their record,” Pandey was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
