New Delhi: The Patna High Court has asked the Centre and the state government to file reports on what steps they have taken to implement the welfare provisions contained under Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act, 2019.

A bench of the Chief Justice Sanjay Karol and Justice S. Kumar gave this order in the civil writ petition highlighting the pitiable state of affairs of transgenders in the state. They also asked the government to show steps taken for compliance with implementation of the directions issued by the Supreme Court in National Legal Services Authority v. Union of India.

After going through all the arguments and fact the Court directed:

“The  Principal Secretary, Social Welfare Department, Government of Bihar as well as Principal Secretary, Social Welfare Department, Government of India file an affidavit indicating the steps taken for full compliance of the provisions of the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act, 2019 and the Rules framed thereunder, as also the directions issued by the Hon’ble Apex Court in the case of National Legal Services Authority v. Union of India, (2014) 5 SCC 438, more specifically Paragraph 135 thereof”. 

It is not a hidden fact that this community is suffering much in this present pandemic condition of Corona Virus. Earlier, the High Court had directed the Government to ensure that the persons belonging to the Transgender community are not deprived of food grains distributed under the social security schemes, solely for not possessing a ration card.
