The growing demand to exempt sanitary napkins from GST had gained a massive following, as many social workers and prominent political figures had written to then Finance Minister Arun Jaitley demanding #TaxFreePad.

Social workers, activists and politicians had slammed this decision and had openly demanded the exemption of sanitary napkins in GST. Many prominent personalities had written to Arun Jaitley and Union Cabinet Minister for Women & Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi to roll back this decision.
