In a historic movement, Chhattisgarh recruited 13 transgender people in the police force. This is the highest number of trans police personnel in any state. Until now, only two transgenders were part of police force one in Tamil Nadu while another in Rajasthan. 

For the year 2019-20 around 20 transgenders appeared in the exam out of which 13 were selected. According to the result that came out on Monday, nine of them have been recruited from Raipur. The selected personnel will serve in four districts of the state as Constables.  

Many senior officers including the DGP Chhattisgarh DM Awasthi congratulated all of them and welcomed them in the force. Senior IPS officer RK Vij called it the historic moment  and tweeted, “ Chhattisgarh has made history today. Out of about 2000 select constable recruits, 13 are transgenders. It is for the first time that trans people competed for this post and have been finally selected in the police force. Equal rights for all ultimately.” Let it be noted that the Supreme Court recognised transgender community as a third gender along with male and female and ruled that they have equal privilege over the fundamental rights enshrined in the Constitution in 2014. In 2017, the Chhattisgarh police decided to include third gender in their recruitment exam.The examination exercise was finally completed in 2019-20. Recently, the Bihar government has also decided to recruit transgenders in the police force.
