India Eunuchs Can Now Be Recruited For Government Jobs

Eunuchs can now be recruited for govt jobs

Chandigarh, July 6
Eunuchs can now be recruited in government offices and a third category, that of transgender, has been created for them in the application forms by Punjab.

As a case for their rights came up for hearing this afternoon, the Punjab and Haryana High Court made it clear that they were not ineligible for government jobs.

Punjab informed the Division Bench of Acting Chief Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and Justice AK Mittal that a separate category (transgender) had been created and a notification issued on March 4.

In an affidavit, Punjab Deputy Secretary, Department of Social Security and Women and Child Development Amritpal Singh, referred to a statement made before the court earlier that a separate transgender (T) category, other than male (M) and female (F) would be incorporated in all application forms.The “T” category would be considered in the category of men.

Following Punjab’s stand, Haryana too has made it clear that eunuchs will be considered in the category of men.

Punjab is the first state to “give the eunuchs their due”. So far, a national policy on categorisation of eunuchs has not been formulated. The move by the two states is expected to go a long way in helping the eunuchs get respectable jobs.

kds1980 ji is the category based on Biological basis as there are tons of Eunuchs functionally running Punjab right nowlol. May be they should be put in the "T" category for their inability to serve the people that elected them.

Sat Sri Akal.
