A Plea has been filed in Andhra Pradesh High Court seeking 4% reservation for Transgender persons in Public Employment

Matam Gangabhavani, a transgender has moved to the court after being denied appointment as a nurse, in respect of which the Government had issued a notification in June this year.

A writ petition has been filed in the Andhra Pradesh High Court urging that the State Government be directed to implement 4% reservations for transgender persons in public employment with immediate effect.

Matam Gangabhavani, a transsexual lady, has moved the request after she was denied appointment as a nurse, in regard of which the Government had given notice in June this year. 

Gangabhavani presents that she was chosen and appeared in the last legitimacy list. Out of 95 posts accessible, 77 posts were filled by Staff Nurses working in Community Health fixates on an agreement premise. 18 posts were accessible for additional enlistment. 

Notwithstanding, the applicant expresses that she was denied of being selected against the accessible opening by her being a transsexual lady and without any booking for transsexual people. Her appeal illuminates that Gangabhavani had finished a Multi-Purpose Health Worker confirmation course, a BSc through separation mode and a program in General Nursing and Midwifery from the Directorate of Medical Education Board, Amaravathi. 

“In any case, these instructive capabilities are not useful to me with regards to business, as notwithstanding NALSA Judgment which was conveyed on 15.04.2014, coordinating for the presentation of bookings for Transgenders, the state has not approached with any reservations for Transgender People like me”, she has submitted. 

Taking everything into account, the applicant illuminates, 

“Results show that booking strategy has been followed for SC, ST and OBCs, yet no reservation was applied in regard of Transgenders and the Hon’ble Apex Court judgment in NALSA, has not been thought of and recognized by any stretch of the imagination. I was unjustifiably and illicitly denied from the determination for the post of staff nurture on contract premise to gain my vocation.” After portrayals shipped off different Government functionaries over the issue yielded no productive reaction, Gangabhavani has now moved toward the High Court. 

The High Court has now been called on to direct the State authorities to provide a minimum of 4% reservations in matters of public employment in future recruitments.
