Maharashtra To Become First State To Have Transgender Welfare Board

       The long pending Transgender Welfare Board (TWB) will finally see light of the day with the Maharashtra government making a provision of Rs 5 crore for welfare of the community.

Minister of State for Social Justice Dilip Kamble told that the Board will be set up in a month's time.

It will look after education, employment, housing, and health schemes for transgenders and protect their Constitutional and human rights.

Maharashtra will be the first such state to have such a Board, the minister said.
