Hyderabad: Despite facing hiccups, Telangana state is moving ahead of other states in the enforcement of single tax regime – GST – which came into effect from July 1 last year across the country. Overcoming the GST blues in the ﬁrst few months, the Telangana state has registered 14 per cent growth in tax collections under the new tax structure. In fact, Telangana was the ﬁrst state to adopt GST Act in the country in 2017. Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao was also the ﬁrst chief minister who moved the GST bill by conducting special session of the Assembly. The revenue from the GST is Rs 22,900 crore from July 2017 to June 30, 2018 (Saturday afternoon) as against Rs 19,955 crore in the corresponding year by registering 14 per cent increase in the revenues. The state Commercial Taxes department officials, however, said that before the launch of the GST, state registered 19 per cent growth in the revenues. After the introduction of GST, it was 14 per cent. The slow pace of tax collections in the ﬁrst four months under the GST was the main reason for decline in revenues, according to officials. In the ﬁrst month (August) after enforcement of the GST, revenue from the new tax regime (including SGST and IGST transferred from the centre to the state) was only Rs 1,258.79 crore. The government would have to struggle hard to overcome the hurdles in tax collections in the ﬁrst six months after the implementation of the GST. The state could get only Rs 9,063 crore revenues till January. After the Centre revised the GST tax structure under the pressure from industrial bodies and consumer organisations, tax collections improved signiﬁcantly from January in Telangana. Before GST, the commercial taxes from items covered in the single tax structure to the GSDP (Gross State Domestic Product) registered at 7.09 per cent and after the GST it was 7.66 by achieving 0.57 growth, officials Continued on P4 said.
