India May Cut Share Tax Despite Lower Collections, Times Says

Nov. 7 (Bloomberg) -- India’s finance ministry may lower the securities transaction tax, or STT, although collections have fallen almost 18 percent in the April-October period, the Times of India reported, citing an unidentified official in the department of economic affairs.

Collection from the STT declined to 29.58 billion rupees in the seven-month period because of fewer transactions on the stock exchanges, the report said.
