According to Union Finance Ministry, India’s net direct tax collections till October 8 in the financial year 2022-23 have risen to ₹7.45 lakh crore, more than half of the Budget targets.


  • It is an increase of 16.3% over the tax inflows during the corresponding period a year ago.
  • Based on provisional data, net personal income tax collections grew 17.35%, rising faster than corporate income tax collections that were up 16.29% net of refunds.
  • Securities Transaction Tax (STT) collections combined with personal income tax receipts, grew at a more moderate 16.25%.
  • Underlining that direct tax collections continue to register a steady growth, the Ministry said tax refunds had jumped 81% over the preceding year to touch ₹1.53 lakh crore.
  • Net direct tax collections had crossed ₹7 lakh crore by September 17, 2022 and were 23.3% higher at the time, so there appears to have been a moderation in tax inflows in the intervening three weeks.
  • Gross revenues from direct taxes were at ₹8,36,225 crore on September 17, reflecting a 30.2% growth.
