Transgender people now to be a part of Sindh govt departments with 5pc quota

There is a wave of happiness among the most neglected and ignored members in a society, transgender persons after the Sindh government on Wednesday announced a fixed 5 pc quota to employ transgender folk in all government departments.

Sindh Chief Minister’s Adviser on Information Senator Murtaza Wahab confirmed the news in a post on social media.

In a Twitter post, Murtaza Wahab wrote that, “Sindh Cabinet has decided today that a five per cent quota shall be fixed for transgender in all government departments.”

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah said “we wanted to bring transgender people into the mainstream, instructing that papers for government jobs should be readied.”

The transgender community should work on their education as well, CM added.

Earlier this month, the Sindh chief minister had said the government must allocate a reasonable quota for the recruitment of transgender people in all government departments, including the police.

He had directed the chief secretary to prepare a working paper for the cabinet so that jobs could be allocated for transgender people and urged NGOs and other organisations working for the welfare of transgender people to educate them and bring them in government service.

It is to be noted that, Earlier this year, Inspector-General (IG) of the Sindh Police Syed Kaleem Imam had also announced to employ transgender folks in the force.

Kalim Imam said, “We will make them part of Sindh police, adding that, they are good God-gifted people. Citizens like us. We should stand by them.”

It is pertinent to mention here that, the Supreme Court ruled that transgender people could receive national identity cards as a “third sex” and in 2017, the government issued its first passport with a transgender category.
