The Madras High Court on Tuesday issued notice to the Union government on a PIL seeking removal of the 18 per cent GST on sanitisers and 5 per cent GST on masks in these difficult times due to the COVID-19 pandemic or at least for next few months.

A division bench of Justices M Sathyanarayanan and M Nirmal Kumar posted the matter for further hearing to May 18.




Petitioner S Stalinraja, an advocate, submitted that certain ingredients are taxable.

“…still in these difficult times or at least for next few months if GST not levied on sanitisers and masks it would be a big relief for the people in our country.”

He stated that 23 per cent of the population in India are under poverty line and not in a position to afford essential goods such as masks and sanitisers.
