    When the GST Council declared tax rates, the government had a great opportunity to exempt the basic female hygiene product – a sanitary napkin. But by prioritizing optional accessories like sindoor, bindi, bangles is and making them tax-free instead, the government has drawn the ire of women across the country. While it has missed an opportunity to do walk the talk and better women healthcare in the country, I am hoping that pressure from the media, women groups and citizens can help them change their mind and they take the corrective measure soon. Installing sanitary napkins vending machines and incinerators is a laudable step, but the number for those too need to increase and their working condition needs to maintained.

    Why just stop there.. arent children diapers and vaccinations and health policy fall in same. Life essentials must be tax free. Only facilities must be heavily taxed. Tax paying customer are exempted 10 to 30% by life insurance and pay 15% tax for saving tax? What purpose is behind such tax exemption?

    SINCE YOU ARE BORN IN INDIA, ITS A LUXURY AND U ARE BOUND TO PAY TAX, THOUGH THE POLITICIANS ARE EXEMPTED FROM PAYING TAX.
