Officers of the Goods and Services Council (GST) are scheduled to meet on Thursday (January 11) to deliberate on reasons for the fall in collection, flagged as a major matter of concern for the ministry.

The decision comes after a decline in collections was witnessed in subsequent months of 2017.

In November, the collection was Rs 80,808 crore, down from a provisional Rs 83,346 crore in October and a peak of over Rs 94,000 crore in July, as per data released on December 26.

A noted that states are getting very vocal about falling revenue, and therefore, have decided to discuss steps needed to boost collection.

Prior to this, a preparatory meeting of the Council's Fitment Committee is scheduled for today to discuss rates and simplification of returns.

Officials are likely to consider recommendations of the panel on returns, handicraft and Laws.

The council is also likely to consider validity of handicrafts in the exempted category, and which other products can be placed in this category.

According to the official, certain amendments may be made in the Law during the council meeting on January 18, which are also to be discussed in today's meeting.
