I-T refunds in H2 to be up by Rs 50,000-crore
Growth in personal income tax (PIT) collections may slow a bit in the second half of the current financial year from the impressive 31% seen in the first, as the income tax ((I-T) department aims to make tax refunds to the tune of Rs 2 trillion in the remainder of the year, an official source told FE. “The second-half refunds are likely to be higher than in the year-ago period by around Rs 50,000 crore. This would mean that the refunds in the whole of FY24 would be above Rs 3.5 trillion, as against a little over Rs 3 trillion last year,” the source added.
