To make sanitary napkins, GST free, Gwalior students will send 1,000 of them to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It is a move to get rid of the 12 per cent Goods and Services Tax (GST) on sanitary pads.

The students from Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh started this campaign by writing messages on the pads. They will send the pads to PM once they are able to collect 1,000 such napkins.

The campaign was started on January 4 and has received a lot of support from people via social media. The move also sought to make sanitary napkins free of cost.

“Sanitary napkins have been placed under 12 per cent GST. Women from rural areas use others things during their menstrual days, which is fatal to their health. Instead of giving subsidy, it has been placed under the luxury item. Therefore, we have started this campaign aiming to send 1,000 pads to the government by March 3,” said Hari Mohan, a student.
