What is driving GST collections?

NEW DELHI : In December last year, officers from the Directorate General of GST Intelligence (DGGI) intercepted four trucks outside a Kanpur factory that makes pan masala and tobacco products. These trucks were making their way from the factory without any invoice or the electronic way bill (e-way bill). Under GST, the e-way bill is a compliance mechanism that transporters need to carry when moving goods.

The officers next tallied the stock available in the factory with the stock recorded in the plant’s books— there was a shortage of raw materials and finished products. The manufacturer, the officers concluded, were stealthily removing the tobacco products with the help of a transporter. More than 200 fake invoices used by the transporter were seized.
