Space for transgender

In a landmark move by Supreme court in April 2014, the third gender most commonly known as transgender was given a phenomenal space entry in both birth and death certificates. The official move was issued last month by the Delhi government asking all registrar offices to make changes in the forms.

Earlier the Karnataka government recognizing the need of transgender acceptance  and also to prevent harassment against them decided to create  separate cells for transgender inmates in the Bengaluru central jail. This would be the third  state after Kerala and Pune to accommodate transgender inmates in separate cells.
