Bhubaneswar, June 12 -- In a major gender reform, decks have been cleared for the recruitment of transgender people in the Odisha Police with the State Police Recruitment Board on Saturday issuing a notification inviting online applications for recruitment to sub-inspectors and constable posts and making transgender candidates eligible to apply for the posts.

Once transgender people are recruited, Odisha will be among few states in the country to have them in the State police.

Transgender community across Odisha whole heartedly welcomed the move by Odisha Police and expressed their gratitude to the State government.
