Govt seeks view of paramilitary forces on recruiting transgenders

Jul 02, 2020 15:47 IST

The Home Minister has sought the view of Central Armed Police Forces on the issue of recruiting transgenders as officers in the force. In a notice sent to the CRPF, ITBP, SSB and CISF, the Home Ministry asked them to present their view on incorporating transgender as ‘third gender’ along with male/female in the rules of CAPF Assistant Commandant Examination for this year. The examination for recruiting assistant commandants or ACs is scheduled for December and if the paramilitary forces agree to the suggestion, transgenders will be allowed to take exams as 'third gender'.
