Please sign the petition to reconsider India's government decision of levying customs duty on donated CML drug

Please sign this petition run by the Indian patient organisation "Friends of Max", calling on the Indian government to reconsider their government decision of raising significant import taxes on free Glivec donated to Indian CML patients through a patient assistance programme. For the past 13 years, Glivec was provided for free as a donation to CML patients, but now the Indian government may raise import taxes on a hypothetical financial value of the donated Glivec. This threatens the continuation of the free donation of the drug to thousands of CML patients in India. Please sign the petition at
