The tax collection of the Delhi government plummeted during the last two fiscals due to interruptions of the COVID pandemic.
“There was a negative growth in tax collection in 2020-21 due to the lockdown. Next year (2021-22), the situation improved and this year collections are good as economic activities have revived,” one of the officials said.
The Delhi government has projected a total receipt of Rs 47,700 crore as tax revenue in its budget for 2022-23.
With the average monthly collection now hovering around Rs 4,500 to Rs 4,600, officials said an increase of 15-20 per cent in revenue collection than the estimated amount is expected by the end of the financial year.
