Watch country contact, India give a brief overview of the situation of women's rights in India:
Gender ID laws:
The trans bill (2019) was passed amid heavy opposition. The Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill prohibits discrimination against transgender persons with regard to things like education, employment and the ability to rent or buy properties. It also gives transgender persons a "right to self-perceived identity" — but requires them to register with the government if they want to be officially recognised as "transgender." If a transgender person identifies as a trans man or trans woman and wants to be legally recognised as such, they have to submit proof of gender confirmation surgery to the government.
In recent news, Indian government authorised free "sex reassignment surgeries" at all government hospitals. A few signatories jointly wrote a letter to the Ministry of Social Justice as a response to call for public comments to Transgender Persons Protection Rules, 2020.
