Sanitary napkins exempted from GST

In an unexpected move, the government exempted GST on sanitary napkins. The GST slab on sanitary napkins was condemned by activists who believed that menstrual hygiene was a major reason why girls dropped out of schools and colleges.

Previously, sanitary napkins were being sold at 12% GST and many people across India voiced their disapproval for the same.

Muruganantham, popularly known as pad-man, tweeted “Sanitary pads exempted from GST! Kudos to everyone who fought for this & thanks to @PiyushGoyal Ji & Govt! Making menstrual hygiene accessible is just the start! #Padman team will be the happiest! @mrsfunnybones @akshaykumar – thanks for voicing! A MOVIE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! (sic)
