The government of Kerala has decided to allot two additional seats for transgender students in higher education in all courses in state Universities and affiliated colleges. The circular regarding this was issued by the Higher Education Department on Tuesday.
The circular reads: “The government is pleased to sanction two additional seats in all courses in Universities and affiliated Arts and Science colleges exclusively for admitting transgender students subject to fulfillment of qualification.”
“Due to societal issues these students often have to discontinue their studies or to join other academic institutions after an academic year or after the admission process is closed,” the order said.
The order from the Higher Education Department followed after it was approached by a few transgender students who had applied for various courses in Ernakulam Maharajas College, couldn’t get through the merit based admission process.
