As part of providing a helping hand to the Transgender community in distress, Social Justice Department has formulated a new comprehensive welfare scheme that imparts skill development training to Transgenders. The main aim of the scheme is to bring the transgender community to mainstream of the society by providing skill training so that they become self-reliant.
This training programme will build self-confidence and would create self-employment opportunities for disadvantaged TG community. For implementation of the scheme an amount of Rs. 5 lakh each has been allotted to District Social Justice Officers to meet the expenses for providing skill development training, food and accommodation to selected list of TG participants. The courses offered to the TG community must be affiliated to State Govt. Universities/ Government approved agencies.
The applications received have to be scrutinized and recommended by the concerned District Transgender Justice Board.
