Need for Transgender Couples Marriage Assistance Scheme 2022
Kerala is the first state in the country to introduce a Transgender policy that is aimed at bringing the transgender community, the most underprivileged in the society, to the mainstream. The Social Justice Department under Govt. of Kerala has formulated several noble initiatives for the upliftment of such marginalized groups.
It is for the first time in the country that two transgender individuals, who have undergone sex-change surgery, got married under the Special Marriage Act. But the welfare schemes under this Act do not cover transgender individuals who are legally married after sex-change surgery. Hence the Department has introduced a new scheme that provides marriage assistance for legally married transgender couples who have undergone Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS). The amount of marriage assistance has been fixed to Rs. 30,000/-.
This scheme is intended to help deprived transgender individuals who are planning to get married legally to lead a steady normal family life.
