SC stays proceedings against challenge to 12% GST on sanitary napkins across HCs

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday stayed proceedings in all high courts, challenging the constitutional validity of imposition of 12% goods and services tax (GST) on sanitary napkins.

The matter was brought before a bench headed by chief justice Dipak Misra who said that the matter would now be heard by the apex court and issued notice to petitioners in high courts.

The court was hearing a plea by the Centre seeking to be heard by the apex court on the issue. It sought a stay on proceedings pending in various high courts across the country challenging GST on sanitary napkins so that the apex court could take over the matter.
