About the problem
Only 12% of India’s 355 million menstruating women use menstrual hygiene Products and the remaining 88% of women resort to shocking alternatives like unsanitized cloth, ash and husk sand. Around 70% of women say their family cannot afford to buy menstrual hygiene Products, and maybe it is these figures that make people believe that menstrual hygiene Products are a luxury item when in fact, they are a necessity.
Making sanitary Products and tampons from 12% GST rate to tax-free is the first step. In a country where women are forced to use things like straw and ash during their periods, putting a tax on sanitary napkins seems like a travesty of common sense. Taxing women for a biological process they have no control over is like taxing women for who they are.
what is the affect of Making it affordable ?
More girls will attend school due to the affordability and availably of menstrual hygiene Products and more woman will be able to participate in work comfortably
