The legislation is modelled on the private members’ Transgender bill moved by Rajya Sabha MP Tiruchi Siva and passed by the Upper House on April 24, 2015. This was the first time in 45 years that a private members’ Bill had been passed by the House, forcing the government to assure the House that it would bring it’s own law in Lok Sabha after “correcting infirmities” in Siva’s Bill. The Social Justices Empowerment ministry had several rounds of consultations and has finally moved a Cabinet note. Many provisions of Transgender Bill have been accommodated in the government legislation except for provision for exclusive transgender rights courts, reservation in primary, secondary and higher educational institutions, incentives to employers in private sector, special employment exchanges and national and state commissions for transgender persons. Sources said the Social Justices Empowerment Ministry has asked for comments from different ministries in two weeks after which it’ll take the Bill to the Union Cabinet for its nod. specific mechanisms to protect the interests of the transgender communities in tourism and awareness of the tourism industry towards issues of transgender people is critical. We have made some comments and suggestions from the tourism perspective to the Rights of Transgender Persons Bill, 2015. We request to take these into consideration fill finalising the Bill.
