Sanitary napkins should also be tax free...just like tax free contraceptive options!
This petition had 174 supporters
As discussion about GST is all around the corner and has impacted India just like a wild fire in the forest anyway!..My main reason for the petition is for something which everybody should take into consideration keeping aside people's cries about GST and price hikes!
Everybody is well aware about the bifurcations of the taxes on the commodities. And also everybody must be well aware that the contraceptive methods used to control population i.e. condoms and contraceptive pills are tax free, so why shouldn't the sanitary napkins be tax free for the basic hygiene required by all the ladies at every economic level?
Let's get it straight...government had promised good and maintained washrooms for women after every 1 km but where is that happening? And women are the ones who suffer the most from Urinary tract infections (UTI) than men, still there is nothing done for the same. Most of the good quality sanitary napkins are expensive and implementing extra amount of tax for the same and pocketing out of it at the stake of our country's one of the important beholder's health and hygiene is not a good deed i guess. All the women have rights for usage of better quality sanitary napkins for better sanitation and infection free life.
I suggest you all to sign this e-petition, so our beloved and respected Prime Minister and Finance Minister understand its importance. I request you all to support me in this step of mine.
