Transgender option in civil services exam only after SC clarifies: UPSC tells HC

AMN

TransgendersUnion Public Service Commission (UPSC) today told the Delhi High Court that it caould not include transgenders as a third gender for applying for civil services exam as the category was not yet clearly defined by the Supreme Court.

Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) told a bench of Justices Mukta Gupta and P S Teji that once the apex court clarifies the issue, then it can frame rules for the benefit of transgenders, which includes providing reservation for them.

The Centre submitted that it has moved the apex court seeking clarification on various issues, including the definition of transgenders as well as who would certify them as a third gender.The submissions were made by UPSC and DoPT in their affidavits filed before the bench which said it would hear the matter after the apex court takes up the Centre’s application for clarification.

The PIL, which has sought quashing of UPSC’s notice for Civil Services preliminary examination to the extent of the gender or sex eligibility criteria has now been listed for hearing on July 27.

The petition has contended that lack of the third gender option has resulted in transgenders not being able to apply for examination which is scheduled to be held on August 23.
