Chhattisgarh Constable Recruitment examination results for 2019-20 were declared on March 1, 2021, and, in a first, the Chhattisgarh police got 13 transgender people on-board.
Of the 13, nine were recruited from the Raipur range. “The results of the constable recruitment examination are out, and I congratulate everyone who qualified the examination. We have also recruited transgender people as constable for the first time and I personally congratulate them,” Director General of Police, Chhattisgarh, DM Awasthi, told a news portal.
It goes without saying, but those who made it are elated at the opportunity. “I am very happy today… I have no words to express my happiness. I and all my colleagues worked very hard for this exam. It was a rare opportunity for us which could change our lives, so everyone worked hard day and night,” Krishna Tandi, a transgender who got selected told a news portal.
Until now, two transgender people have been recruited in the country—one in Tamil Nadu and the other in Rajasthan. Recently, the Bihar government decided to recruit transgender people into the police force.
