3

 

On August 21, a Supreme Court Bench of Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud issued notice to the Centre in a petition filed by noted disability rights activist Nipun Malhotra, challenging the levy of GST on mobility aids for Persons With Disabilities (PWDs).
Argued by Advocate Jai A Dehadrai and drawn by Advocate Manisha Ambwani, the petition contends that the imposition of GST on mobility aids used by disabled citizens is violative of the Fundamental Rights guaranteed by Articles 14, 15, 19 and 21 of the Constitution of India.
