Every year around 25% of female students left school because of being embarrassed of blood stained clothes as they can't afford pads.
85% of girls in India still don't have sanitary napkins and use insanitary methods as they can't afford napkins, and now from implementation of GST girls gave 12% GST on them.
This is the basic necessity of every women and it comes under 0% GST .
When we have 0% GST on bangles , bindis, sindoor and condoms (how this can be a necessity life can run without these but sanitary napkins-"no"), then why not on sanitary napkins.
But 12% would also not gonna help as ex- pack of 10 pads cost approx Rs. 85, if 12% comes to 0% it costs Rs. 76 approx.so this is also not affordable to millions of women. There must be lesser price with 0% GST.
