Meet Prithika Yashini, She is the First Transgender Police officer of India!

Moving ahead of all the odds, Prithika Yashini became the first transgender sub-inspector though she was declared failed by one mark. Nonetheless, she got her score re-evaluated in the physical examination and came out clear with flying colors.

Her application was initially rejected because of her being transgender as she did not belong to any of the two specified categories, namely, male or female. Subsequently, she challenged the decision of the TNUSRB in different courts including the High Court of Madras. Accordingly, the High Court of Madras ordered that she be allowed to the officer’s test. The test for the recruitment comprises written test, physical endurance test and a viva-voce (oral test). In an interview, Prithika Yashini said, “I’m excited. It’s a new beginning for the entire transgender community.” adding that she aspires to become an officer of Indian Police Service over a period of time.

This is a huge step forward for our Indian community as a Sub Inspector is the first one in the chain of command who is able to file a charge sheet. A judgment by the Madras High Court on 6 November 2015 directed the Tamil Nadu Uniformed Services Recruitment Board (TNUSRB) to appoint K Prithika Yashini as a sub-inspector of police as she is “entitled to get the job”. The judgment further directed the TNUSRB to include transgenders as a “third category”, apart from the usual category of “male” and “female”.
