Abstract: The Supreme Court of India in its landmark decision in National Legal Services Authority v. Union of India [(2014) 5 SCC 438] ordered, inter alia, that: the government must legally recognize a transgender person's right to identify as male, female or third gender; transgender persons must be granted reservations in educational institutions and public appointments; and the government must provide social welfare schemes and combat discrimination. In furtherance of these objectives, the Rajya Sabha passed the Rights of Transgender Persons Bill, 2014 on April 24, 2015. This issue of the Law & Policy Brief highlights some of the areas where the Bill falls short of the letter and spirit of the Supreme Court verdict
