4. Description Abstract As India finally has the new Goods and Services Tax (GST) rates, the GST Council declared that the tax rate on the sanitary products including sanitary napkins, sanitary towels, and tampons would be 12%, ie, the second lowest tax slab. Statistically this is an improvement since until now sanitary napkins, which were placed under 'luxury products' in India, were taxed at 14.5%. This shows that the taxation on menstrual hygiene products has gone down under the GST regime by 2.5%.
