This achievement underscores the state’s steady economic growth and financial stability, it said.

During this period, the state’s Value Added Tax collections were Rs 5,568 crore, while State Goods and Services Tax collections, including Integrated Goods and Services Tax (IGST) settlements and SGST compensation, reached Rs 20,670 crore, reflecting a remarkable growth rate of 27 per cent, the statement said.
