India’s direct tax collections for financial year 2020-21 (FY21) were at Rs 9.45 lakh crore, according to a statement released by the Ministry of Finance on Friday. The net direct tax collections represent 104.46 per cent of the revised estimates of Rs 9.05 lakh crore of direct taxes for the FY21, the statement said.
The net direct tax collections include Corporation Tax (CIT) at Rs 4.57 lakh crore and Personal Income Tax (PIT) including Security Transaction Tax (STT) at Rs 4.88 lakh crore.

The ministry added that refunds amounting to Rs 2.61 lakh crore have been issued in FY21 as against refunds of Rs 1.83 lakh crore in the FY20, thereby marking a rise of nearly 42.1 per cent on-year.
The statement said that these figures are as yet provisional and subject to change pending the final collation of data collections.
