The Budget has fixed the fiscal deficit target at 3.4% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), while the gross tax revenue is estimated to grow at 17.15%, as per the revised estimates for 2018-19. Though the Goods & Services Tax (GST) target has been revised downwards by Rs 1 lakh crore, the government may still miss the indirect tax collection target of Rs 10.45 lakh crore for the year, including customs and other duties, given the collection trends so far, experts said. Similarly, an upward revision of Rs 50,000 crore in direct tax collection estimated at Rs 12 lakh crore, too, looks ambitious to many. D K Srivastava, chief policy advisor at EY, said, “There is a concern that the government is so optimistic. This is because they have provided for still high GST revenues despite reducing it by Rs 1 lakh crore in the revised estimates.” As far as direct tax targets are concerned, “to achieve the projected target of corporation tax collection, it will have to grow at 24% in the remaining months of the year. In the past four years, however, the corporation tax has grown at a mere 10% in the last three months of a fiscal,” Srivastava said, adding that the corporation tax revenues have grown at 14% till December so far.
