Automobile, infrastructure development, and iron & steel saw the greatest increase in GST revenue in Uttar Pradesh in 2022-23, according to a state tax department report.
The “business sector-wise collection report” revealed that the state’s overall growth in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) for the fiscal year that ended last month was 21% higher than the previous year, when Covid-19 severely disrupted economic activity.
“The economy was strong in 2022–2023 for the first time since the pandemic started in March 2020,” a senior department official said. “This led to positive growth in most sectors, and the overall growth stayed over 20% even though U.P. didn’t get any compensation from the Centre after June 2022.” “UP got about 11,000 crore in compensation up until June,” he said.
