GST or any other tax should not be applicable on something as essential as sanitary napkins because this makes the sanitary napkins even more difficult to afford and access. This results in the use of cloth over pads, for many women. This makes women and girls vulnerable to infections. With the recent exemption of GST on sanitary napkins, there is hope that more women will be able to afford and use sanitary napkins, than before. I hope more and women get easy access to sanitary napkins and also get the opportunity to understand more about menstrual health and hygiene from FPA India.
