Indian campaigners protest over sanitary pad and tampon tax

Campaigners in India are going to court against a tax on menstrual hygiene products. Sanitary pads and tampons are taxed at 12% even though many other feminine cosmetic products have been made tax-free.Few women use the products in India, and campaigners say the government should do more to improve that, rather than make the products more expensive by taxing them.Produced by Yogita Limaye: Filmed & edited by Jaltson AC
