Eunuchs in Delhi to get pension


TIA correspondent
NEW DELHI: The Municipal Corporation Of Delhi (MCD) has brought some good news for third gender of the human being. It has announced  a monthly pension scheme for eunuchs  livening in its area . According to a  notification by the MCD, the  agency will pay Rs 1,000 as pension to eunuchs all across the city. There  are approximately 3 lakh eunuchs in Delhi.


The pension scheme of the civic agency benefits different sections of the society including the elderly, widows and physically challenged.


Like others, eunuchs too will have to get a recommendation from the area councillor for securing the pension, MCD Works Committee Chairman Jagdish Mamgain said.They will also have to submit a medical certificate from any government hospital as proof of being an eunuch.


An affidavit to the effect that the eunuch is not married and the birth certificate or any other document showing the age of the applicant not below 18 years will have to be given. The MCD also included orphans up to the age of 18 years into the pension scheme.  "Eunuchs are a deprived section of the society. They don’t have any employment opportunity and only a few young ones earn money through dancing and singing on auspicious occasions," an MCD statement said, pointing out that when they get older, they face a distressing situation and the government lacks a plan for giving assistance to them.


The Municipal Corporation of Delhi is among the largest municipal bodies in the world providing civic services to more than estimated population of 13.78 million citizens in the capital city.
