Double-digit growth in India’s tax collection figures: Jaitley

New Delhi: Finance Minsiter Arun Jaitley on Thursday said that the impact of demonetisation is clearly visible with the India’s tax collection figures seeing double-digit growth.

“The impact of demonetisation on tax revenue and collection is already visible. There has been a 26.2 per cent increase in central indirect tax collection till November 30.

Till December 19, direct tax collection increase has been to the extent of 14.4 per cent,” Jaitley said at a press conference here.

“Remonetisation has advanced, not even a single incident of unrest has been reported. Things will be better than what they were in last six weeks or so,” Jaitley said.
