Dehradun became the first district to recognize transgenders, issued identity cards

Dehradun has become the first district in the state to recognize transgenders. Identity cards have been issued to two people of the district by the Social Welfare Department. With this, the transgenders will not feel neglected and will be able to join the mainstream.

Social Welfare Officer Hemlata Pandey said that with the efforts of the District Magistrate, ID cards have been issued to Vikram alias Kajal Thapa and Sunil alias Aditi Sharma.

The Government of India has created a special portal to issue ID cards to transgenders as per the ransgender Persons Act 2019. On this transgenders can apply for the ID card.

Also, you can change the name as per your wish. By getting the identity card, a transgender can also do business by taking a loan from any bank and can also take advantage of the government scheme.
