Finally, it seems that landmark judgement and decisions beneficial for the people have returned in the Indian system!
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) have demanded to have ‘Transgender’ as a third option to be included in all types of Bank forms in banks all across India.
“Banks are, therefore, directed to include ‘third gender’ in all forms/applications etc. prescribed by the Reserve Bank or the banks themselves, wherein any gender classification is envisaged,” a notification read.
As per a judgment on April 14, 2014, the Supreme Court had upheld transgender persons’ right to decide their self- identified gender and directed the centre and state governments to grant legal recognition of their gender identity such as male, female or as third gender.
Is this what we call development? Is this what we call progress? I say YES!
