This Bill is aimed at recognizing and protecting the rights of the transgender persons who face a lot of discrimination and disrespect in the society. They are mostly excluded from all privileges which may lead to bias and injustice to them. They are even thrown from their own families and villages. Every transgender persons shall have right to reside and be included in his household. We find that getting a residence for members of this community is the most difficult thing. The minds of the people are so prejudiced that it is very difficult to change things at the ground level.
