According to the government release, Direct tax collection, net of refunds, stood at Rs 9.57 lakh crore which is 21.82% higher than the net collections for the same period of last year.

 

This collection, according to the CBDT, is 52.50% of the total Budget estimates of direct taxes for the financial year 2023-24.
