DDA's transgender friendly 2014 Housing Scheme
Delhi Development Authority's (DDA) Housing Scheme for 2014 is transgender friendly with the authority providing column of transgender also along with male, female gender category.
This step by the DDA certainly echoes the sentiments of the Supreme Court, which in a ruling few days back said that transgenders should be considered as third gender by the government and private authorities.

Such provision was not available in the earlier housing schemes of the DDA. This time DDA's Vice-Chairman took the progressive initiative of introducing transgender category in the latest housing scheme's forms, as per a HT report.

"The decision was taken because the authority wanted to reflect the progressive thinking of the society," said Balvinder Kumar as reported by HT. 

The housing scheme forms are in two two parts i.e. A and B. Applicant's have to write their name in the first column of the part A of the form. The part B of the form mentions about the three gender categories i.e. male, female, transgender. Applicants have to tick on the suitable option.

The present housing scheme that was launched on September 1 is open till October 9. Applicant's can apply till this date. So far more than 14.5 lakh forms have been sold by the DDA.

There are four to five types of flats available this time including LIG, MIG, HIG, Janta and flats for low income group.

For low income group the registration amount is Rs. 10,000 that needs to be deposited via demand draft during form submission. For other types of flats the registration amount is Rs. 100,000. One can also get their applications financed via various banks.
