You are right that the government is going to stretch its revenue targets substantially this year. However, the government does have a broad strategy to push up revenues. Here are some pointers for you to consider.

a) The government is pushing for improving its collection of direct taxes and GST. Now GST collections have crossed Rs.1 lakh crore consistently on a monthly basis and e-invoicing will also help.

b) The government has also planned an aggressive push for disinvestments in this year with close to Rs.1 trillion to be collected from a mix of stake sale and strategic sale. Air India and others could be among the companies on the block.

c) The government has just announced a massive sale of spectrum where nearly 8600 MHZ of airwaves to be sold and the government expects to raise nearly Rs.6 trillion from this sale.

d) The government also expects PSU companies to reward the government more through dividend payouts and buybacks.

e) Lastly, the Jalan Panel report will be submitted soon and that is likely to recommend a bigger transfer by the RBI to the government from its surplus.

In short, the government may not really have too much to worry on the revenue generation front in the current fiscal year 2019-20.
