“A list of those who require housing will be submitted to the GP. Around 75 acres of land has been identified for this purpose and another 75 acres of land remains to be identified in the district,” said the DC.

Awareness programmes will be organised in all schools and colleges informed the Dc and added that all departmental authorities in the district will raise awareness about the transgender community among the general public. A task force will also be set up in the police department.
