Members of the transgender community will now be able to use public toilets exclusively made for them in New Delhi. In the annual budget for 2021-22, the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has decided to provide public toilets exclusively for the third-gender in the National Capital. H.P. Singh, a senior NDMC official dealing with the project, told news agency IANS, “Construction of toilets exclusively for the third-gender, especially in busy marketplaces, has been a long-pending demand from the transgender community in Delhi.” The under-construction toilet at Shastri Bhawan will be the first exclusive toilet for the people of the transgender community in Delhi.
