Option for ‘other’ in JNU poll forms
Let's hope government websites are also update with similar options.Jawaharlal Nehru University has introduced a “third gender” option in the nomination forms for student union elections, scheduled for September 12.
In a notification yesterday, the JNU students’ union election committee said: “The committee is going to introduce the option of third gender as ‘other’ in the nomination form of the JNUSU elections 2014-15.”
The Supreme Court had acknowledged transgenders as the “third gender” earlier this year.
Delhi University too has introduced the third gender option in its application forms for postgraduate courses.
