New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday sought responses from the Centre, the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) and others on a PIL seeking directions for safeguarding the interests of intersex children who undergo unregulated sex change surgeries.

A bench comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and justices J B Pardiwala and Manoj Misra took note of the submissions of the counsel appearing for the petitioner, Madurai resident Gopi Shankar M, that such intersex persons are subjected to unregulated surgeries putting them at risk.

”Issue notice,” the bench said. The top court asked Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati to assist it during the hearing of the plea.

The PIL said the medical interventions for such sex reassignment surgeries are punishable offences in other jurisdictions.

The PIL has made Union ministries of Home Affairs, Social Justice and Empowerment, Health and Family Welfare, Law and Justice, and Women and Child Development parties to the plea.

The Registrar General, the Census Commissioner of India and the CARA have also made parties to the plea.
