Collection encouraging “The slight increase in collection despite rate cuts on several white goods products from end July is encouraging,” Pratik Jain, partner and leader, Indirect Tax, PwC India wrote in a note. “However, the monthly collections are now largely within a small range. Since September 30 is the last date for claiming credit for financial year ending March 2018, the quantum of credit might be much larger than previous months. Hence, the collection in October could get impacted.”
