Indirect tax collection target challenging but achievable: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley
August, 16th 2014

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said Rs 6.23 lakh crore indirect taxes collection target for the current fiscal is a challenging one but efforts are on to achieve the same by taking steps to boost growth.

"The revenue targets in the case of indirect taxes for the current financial year 2014-15 are challenging one but are very much achievable. The revenue targets for indirect taxes for the current financial year is fixed at Rs 6,23,244 crore, with an overall growth rate of more than 25 per cent," he said here.

In order to spur the growth, he said, the government has in the past few months concentrated on improving areas of manufacturing and infrastructure.

"Last few years have been somewhat difficult as far as the Indian economy is concerned. In last few years when you had modest growth rate, they were coupled with either a static or negative growth rate especially in manufacturing, as a result some of the indirect taxes took the hit," he said while addressing Chief Commissioners and Directors General of Customs, Central Excise and Service Tax here.

However, the government has taken a series of measures in the past two months both inside and outside the budget process in this direction to boost the performance of these sectors.

Figures relating to manufacturing sector in the months of June and July this year are quite encouraging, he said, adding if this trend continues for a few more months only then it will constitute a pattern.

Highlighting that the government is in favour of trade facilitation, he said, efficient trade facilitation leads to substantial reduction in transactional cost for the businesses.

With respect to trade facilitation in taxation, he said a large number of irritants which had been created particularly in the tax administration, have been consciously addressed.

He emphasised that trade facilitation will not only bring ease in doing business in the country but will also reduce the cost of doing business.

The Finance Minister asked the senior officers of the Central Board of Excise and Customs ( CBEC) to work as a facilitator for tax payers and at the same time take action wherever they find cases of revenue leakages or tax evasion.

The cost of tax collection, both in case of direct and indirect taxes in our country, is not very high and further investment in strengthening the tax infrastructure in the country will bring better returns to the exchequer of the government, he said.

The minister also laid emphasis upon reducing tax litigation and tax settlement mechanism to unlock the money held up due to litigation.
