The Indian government has decided to scrap a controversial 12% tax on the feminine hygiene products, it announced late Saturday, marking a victory for campaigners who have lobbied against the tax for more than a year.
According to India’s National Family Health Survey, more than 40% of Indian women aged 15 to 24 do not have access to sanitary products during their period.
India now joins Ireland, Kenya and Canada as one of the few countries where sanitary products are tax-free.
Now that sanitary pad in India is tax-free, more and more women in India will be able to use sanitary pad in the years to come.
