He furthered that, 67.45 lakh businesses filed goods and services tax (GST) returns in October and deposited Rs 1,00,710 crore as taxes.

The Finance Ministry had targeted monthly GST collections to be Rs 1 lakh crore for this fiscal. The collections, however, stood at Rs 94,016 crore in May, Rs 95610 crore in June, Rs 96,483 crore in July, Rs 93,960 in August and Rs 94,442 crore in September.

The states which contributed the most to the buildup in total taxes collected include Kerala (44 percent), Jharkhand (20 percent), Rajasthan (14 percent), Uttarakhand (13 percent) and Maharashtra (11 percent), an official statement said.

Of the Rs 1 lakh crore total gross GST revenue collected in October, central GST is Rs 16,464 crore, state GST is Rs 22,826 crore, IGST is Rs 53,419 crore (including Rs 26,908 crore collected on imports) and cess is Rs. 8,000 crore.

The BJP government’s effort to subsume indirect taxes under a single comprehensive tax was implemented last year on July 1.

Union Minister Ramdas Athawale had also confirmed earlier this week that the Modi government was contemplating bringing petrol and diesel under the ambit of GST.

“If petrol and diesel are brought under GST, it will help bring down their prices by Rs 20-30, which will provide relief to people of this country including the middle class and common masses,” Athawale had said.
