The chart below shows trends in monthly gross GST revenues during the current year. The table shows the state-wise figures of GST collected in each State during the month of November 2020 as compared to November 2019.

Divakar Vijayasarathy, Founder & Managing Partner, DVS Advisors LLP said, "On the back drop of unlock and festive season, GST collections have clocked over 1 lakh crore in the month of November as well. This would definitely give some respite from the stress of the pandemic. Even in the months of December and January, the collections are expected to be stable with the support of the festive season but the real challenge or indication of recovery would be sustaining the collections post festive season in the months of February & March. More than usual, focus would be there on the Budget, 2021, inspite of the Government’s repeated insistence that development measures would be initiated off the budget as well."

GST revenue had topped 1 lakh crore in 8 out of 12 months of 2019-20. However, in the current fiscal, the revenue has taken a hit due to the lockdown and the consequent slowdown in the economy.

Revenue in April was 32,172 crore, May ( 62,151 crore), June ( 90,917 crore), July ( 87,422 crore), August ( 86,449 crore), September ( 95,480 crore), October ( 1,05,155 crore) and November ( 1,04,963 crore).
