''Service Tax is levied by the Center but Collected and Appropriated by the States"

I know about levy and collection but what's meant by Appropriation?

  • Basically the Centre levies the tax.
    The proceeds of the tax are collected by the States and go to the States. The Centre doesn't get the collected tax. The States use the proceeds.

  • Both the tax definition and quantum is decided by the Union, while the state collects it and spends (appropriates) it.
