Karnataka becomes first to provide reservation for 'transgenders' in Govt jobs

It specifies a one percent reservation in all general and reserve categories for the third gender.

Transgenders in India have struggled for a long to time to make their worth count in the country. Now to boost their clan, Karnataka becomes the first state to provide one per cent reservation for the 'transgender' community in all the government services.

 

A report was submitted by the government submitted before the High Court in this regard informing that a notice had already been issued after amending the Karnataka Civil Service (General Recruitment) Rule, 1977.

 

A final notification issued on July 6 specifies a one percent reservation in all general and reserve categories for the third gender.

 

Whenever a government jobs application will be published, 'others' column must be added along with male and female columns. Further, it also underlines that there should not be any discrimination to the transgenders in the process of selection.
