Belagavi administration claims no third gender voter in the district

BELAGAVI: Local authorities here have claimed there aren't any transgender voters in all 18 constituencies of the district — a pointy turnaround in claims made previous. This announcement used to be made by means of the district administration whilst pointing out the overall checklist of registered voters for the assembly elections on Tuesday.
The draft voters checklist declared by means of the administration final month had 261 transgender voters within the district. Also, many people from this third gender avail advantages of a number of government schemes.

Yet, deputy commissioner S Ziyaullah claimed no voter has been registered below the transgender category. Prior to a Supreme Court ruling in 2016, which decreed that transgender be registered below third gender, participants of the group known themselves as both male or feminine. Now though, many participants of the transgender group avail government advantages specifically meant for them.

Of the 261 from the transgender group within the draft voters checklist declared previous by means of the administration, 67 are from Belagavi (South) constituency, followed by means of 34 in Belagavi (North), 20 in Kudachi, 18 in Belagavi (Rural) and 16 in Gokak.


Most people of the group, referred to as jogappa, keep in Savadatti and worship deity Renuka Yallamma within the the city. But consistent with the draft checklist, just a single transgender voter is living in Savadatti. DC Ziayaulla stated the administration has rectified the mistakes made in draft voters checklist whilst pointing out ultimate checklist.


Tanaji, a transgender belonging to Humanity Foundation which goes for the transgender group, claimed there are more than 261 transgender people within the district and majority are jogappas followed by means of hijras. Nearly, 106 people between 25 and 65 years of age get Rs 500 per thirty days pension below Maitri scheme of the state government.


Tanaji published almost all participants of the transgender group ticked the third gender whilst making use of for Aadhar playing cards. But because the voter IDs were made 5 years in the past — before the SC verdict — all participants had selected both male or feminine gender. “I don’t assume anyone has rectified the gender in their voter IDs regardless of an internet choice. The administration is supposed to sensitize people on this regard.”
