New Delhi: Direct tax collections during the six months ended September show that net collections are at Rs 3.27 lakh crore which is 8.95% more than the net collections for the corresponding period last year.

The April-September direct tax collection, which includes corporate and personal income tax, shows that 38.65% of the Budget Estimate of direct taxes for 2016-17 has been achieved, said a statement from the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT).

"As regards the growth rates for Corporate Income Tax (CIT) and Personal Income Tax (PIT), in terms of gross revenue collections, the growth rate under CIT is 9.54% while that under PIT (including STT etc) is 16.85%. However, after adjusting for refunds, the net growth in CIT collections is 2.56% while that in PIT collections is 18.60%. Refunds amounting to Rs 86, 491 crores have been issued during April-September, 2016, which is 26.99% higher than the refunds issued during the corresponding period last year," the statement added.

"The growth in corporate advance tax is 8.14% as against 44.5% in Personal advance tax collections. The high growth rate in PIT advance tax is also due to the fact that as against 30% of annual advance tax which was payable till September instalment in earlier years, from this financial year, 45% of the annual advance tax liability is to be paid by September," the Finance Ministry said in the statement.
