The introduction and implementation of Goods and Service Tax marked was a turning point in India’s history of taxation. In a diverse and federal nation like India, where many tax laws were unified into a single system, the adoption of this complete system was especially noteworthy. Gross GST collection from April to March 2023-24 increased by an impressive 13 percent year over year to Rs 18.40 lakh crore. For FY 2023–2024, the average monthly gross collection is Rs 1.68 lakh crore, which is more than the Rs 1.5 lakh crore received in the equivalent period of the previous year.

The GST is a value-added tax applied on the majority of goods and services sold for domestic consumption. Consumers pay the GST, but businesses that provide products and services remit it to the government. GST is levied on the 'supply' of goods or services, as opposed to the prior concept of levy on the manufacture of things, the sale of goods, or the provision of services. The rates of CGST, SGST, and IGST are mutually agreed upon by the Centre and the States. The rates are announced based on the GST Council's suggestion. In May 2015, the GST (122nd Constitutional Amendment) Bill, 2014 was enacted. It was enacted as the Constitution (101st Amendment) Act, 2016, and went into force on September 16, 2016. The GST was implemented on July 1, 2017.

The highest ever GST collection was recorded in April 2024 at Rs 2,10,267 crore. The GST revenue collection was lowest in June 2021 at Rs. 92,800 crore.
