Handbook on rights of transgenders launched by Jindal Global University

NEW DELHI: A handbook titled “Rights of Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming People in India” was launched by the Centre for Health, Law, Ethics and Technology (CHLET) of the Jindal Global Law School (JGLS).  Jindal Global University has unveiled the handbook which is based on  rights of transgenders and gender non-conforming people in India.

Professor (Dr) C Raj Kumar, Founding Vice-Chancellor, O.P. Jindal Global University and Dean of Jindal Global Law School, in his special address, thanked the transgender community for giving the faculty and students at the University an opportunity to contribute to the process of legal empowerment.

“There are very few educational spaces that provide opportunities to move beyond the classroom and engage with social movements that have the potential for fundamental social transformation,” he said.

The handbook is divided into four chapters: Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Getting Government Identification, and the Right to Information. The Handbook will be made available online, and CHLET is currently working on translating the handbook in seven regional languages as well.
