Please refer to this office letter no. 201 l/TG-I/20/P/R.Form dated 04.11.2016 (Commercial Circular no. 57 of 2016), wherein it was advised to include the transgender option as Transgender (Male /Female) alongside Male/Female in reservation/cancellation requisition form.
2. The issue regarding issuing of certificate to the Transgender as Male/Female was taken up with Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment, who has informed that the bill “The Transgender Person (Protection of Rights) Bill 2016” has been referred to Standing Committee on Social Justice and Empowerment for examination and to make a report.
2.1 In view of above and on receipt of a Writ Petition no. 24798(W) of 2017″ Atri Kar vs. Union of India & Others filed in the High Court of Calcutta, the matter has been reviewed and it has been decided that till such time the detailed modalities on this account are finalised by the Ministry of Social Justice, a provision may be made in the system to capture the gender of Transgender as “T” instead of T(M/F) as advised earlier. There will, however, be no change iii the reservation/cancellation requisition form for the time being.
3. CRIS will make necessary changes in the software for giving the option of Transgender (T) alongside the option of Male/Female (M/F) in PRS as well as in online reservation system under intimation to all zonal Railways as well as this office.
