The newly imposed 30 per cent cess on imported sanitary pads was removed with effect from today (20), the Finance Ministry said.

It said the tax on imported sanitary pads was reduced to 70 per cent from 102 per cent.

“However, the 15 per cent VAT, 7.5 per cent  port charges and 2 per cent NBT will continue to remain,” it said. (Ranjana Kasturi)
