New Delhi: In reply to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s remark against GST on goods for differently-abled people, the finance ministry on Tuesday said that such products have been kept in only 5 per cent tax slab.

"The products for differently-abled people have been kept in the 5 per cent tax ambit, while earlier they attracted 5 to 18 per cent tax," the finance ministry stated in a press release.
