This is the eighth month and for seventh months in a row now, that the monthly GST revenues have been above the Rs1.4 lakh crore mark. The growth in GST revenue till September 2022 over the same period last year is 27 per cent, continuing to display very high buoyancy.

The government considers this as clear indication that the GST portal maintained by GSTN has fully stabilised and is glitch free. September also saw another milestone getting crossed when more than 11 million e-way bills and e-invoices, combined (7.29 million e-invoices and 3.77 million e-way bills), were generated without any glitch on the portal run by NIC on 30 September 2022.
