Sales tax abolished for sanitary napkins

Maldives Independent November 29, 2018

Parliament approved Wednesday night a bill to exempt sanitary napkins from the six percent Goods and Services Tax.

The government-sponsored legislation was passed unanimously with 73 votes in favour from the 79-member house.

During the debate on the bill earlier on Wednesday, MPs urged the government to monitor whether shops would reduce prices. A campaign dubbed #MassaruTax (period tax) to abolish the tax was launched on social media by a pair of Maldivian sisters in 2016. An online petition was also circulated to gather support.
