In terms of Hon’ble Supreme Court in its judgement in writ petition (Civil) No. of 2013 National Legal Services Authority Ws Union of India and others delivered on 15/04/2014 declared in para-129.
1. Hijras, Eunuchs, apart from binary gender, be treated as “third gender” for the purpose of safeguarding their rights under Part III of our Constitution and the laws made by the Parliament and the State legislature.

2. Transgender persons’ right to decide their self-identified gender is also upheld and the Centre and State Governments are directed to grant legal recognition of their gender identity such as male, female or as third gender.

3. Directed Centre and State Governments to take steps to treat them as socially and educationally backward classes of citizens and extend all kinds of reservations in case of admission in educational institution and public appointments.

You are requested to disseminate the same to all the schools under your jurisdiction for inclusion of “Third Gender” in all forms/applications for the purpose of admission to Kendriya Vidyalayas w.e.f ensuing academic session 2015-16 where ever gender classification is envisaged.

This is for information and necessary action at your end.
