NEW DELHI Jan 9 India's indirect tax receipts
grew by an annual 14.2 percent in December, Finance Minister
Arun Jaitley said on Monday, adding that the robust figures
suggested the government's cash crackdown had little impact on
overall economic activity.
Last November, Prime Minister Narendra Modi scrapped 500-
and 1,000-rupee banknotes as part of a crackdown on tax dodgers
and counterfeiters, leaving companies, farmers and households
all in pain.
