The Delhi High Court today sought to know the Centre’s stand on a plea seeking to change the name and gender of transgenders in the official records and challenging the mandatory requirement for undergoing the medical procedure of sex change.

The central government’s lawyer told Justice Vibhu Bakhru that it will seek instructions regarding the queries raised by the court as to whether change of sex was permitted without the medical procedure.

The Centre’s standing counsel Monika Arora said the Transgender Bill has been sent to the parliamentary standing committee and would be introduced in the upcoming winter session of Parliament. She also said she would file an affidavit regarding the government’s stand in the issue.
