Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday dismissed slowdown concerns post demonetisation as "anecdotal" and said that indirect tax collection grew at a decent 14.2 per cent in December buoyed mainly by excise, reflecting an uptick in manufacturing.

Customs mop up, however, witnessed 6.3 per cent decline mainly on account of dip in gold imports.
