AGARTALA — The overall tax collection in Tripura has increased substantially over the last one year, a senior official said on Tuesday.

Sales tax collection has increased by 16 per cent, from INR 367.67 crore to INR 428.32 crore during the period, he said.

The state’s revenue has increased from INR 2,445 crore to INR 2,656.86 crore, the minister said.

“Tax collection has increased due to efforts of the Tripura government agencies. This is the true reflection of better fiscal management in the state,” he said.

“Currently, financial transactions are being done in government departments through the Integrated Financial Management System (IFMS). The system will be updated to ensure faster financial transactions and more transparency,” he said.
