The CGST target in the Union Budget for 2019-20 is Rs 6.1 trillion. “The April collection indicates the tax base is increasing gradually, with GST getting stabilised with measures such as e-way bills and effective data  Perhaps one reason for this increase was also a push from businesses to their vendors for reporting sales of 2017-18, for which the last date of claiming credit coincides with GST filings for the month of March,” said Pratik Jain, partner at consultancy PwC India. He felt one could now expect the monthly collection to regularly exceed Rs 1 trillion.
