Need for the Document[edit]

  • TG community is still ostracized in society and cannot take up job offers or continue education due to lack of accommodation facility. Though there has been improvement in the mindset of the people, still the stigma of giving transgender persons a house exists in society.
  • Due to this problematic scenario, transgenders who are pursuing the scholarship scheme are forced to discontinue their studies. For addressing this issue, the Department of Social Justice has introduced a scheme that provides an amount of Rs 4,000/- or above as financial assistance to Transgender community as rent for finding hostel facility / accommodation.
