Hi,

The content on your site is dynamically loading within the same page. Each time you navigate to another link on your site a new instance of the GTM container is loaded and this causes the analytics tag is getting fired again and again. You need to make sure that the container is loaded only once.
You can track the URL changes using GTM like in the article below:

Let me know if you have questions.

Thanks Arnold for the response.

Please let me know how can I check if GTM container is loading more than once. When I check this in chrome developer, I see it loads once.

Since the website is build on Angularjs (single page application), all the tags from GTM is firing based on events.

Hi,

You can see in Google Tag Assistant that every click results in adding one more instance of the GTM container: https://i.imgur.com/10UAIeV.png
