Delhi Government is seriously on a roll and we can’t count the number of cool initiatives that it’s made lately! And here’s one more. The government has started the process of establishing a transgender welfare board in the city and we think it’s awesome!
What’s This Board About | The board will conduct a comprehensive study in order to learn about the condition of transgender people in the capital. It will collect information relating to the education, employment, health schemes and the status of constitutional rights of the transgender community. The data will then be included in the report of the Transgender Welfare Board.
There are NGOs that claim that most transgender citizens don’t have identity cards and are suffering significantly on the educational and employment front, which is one of the issues that definitely need to be addressed.
Let’s see how this committee will tackle such challenges. Hoping for the best!
