Transgender individuals are one of India’s most discriminated-against high-risk groups. In India, 4.9 lakh transgender individuals were counted in the 2011 census. The proportion of individuals working in the transgender community (38%) is significantly lower than the general population (46%). Only 65 percent of transgender people find a job for more than six months a year, compared to 75 percent of the overall population.
