The Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) , just announced that Aqua Line’s sector 50 Station shall be converted into ‘She Man’ station soon , in order to promote Trans Rights.
From special facilities to employment opportunities, all will be made available at the station, so as to uplift the Trans-Community.
As per the data of Census 2011 , in India there are approximately 4.9lakh Transgenders , out of which 30-40k , reside in NCR only. This step has been taken so that the normal public becomes a little bit sensitive towards them and start seeing them as normal human beings just like everyone out there.
“Management at the station will be sensitised and trained with regard to issues concerning the community. The station will have public display signs and announcements will also be made for awareness among passengers. Noida Metro Rail Corporation plans to include members of the Transgender Community at the ticket counters and other areas of the station” , said CEO Noida Authority , to India Today.
This step by the Noida Authority is highly appreciated as India still hasn’t adjusted to the concept of Trans-Community , which has led to nothing but severe sufferings for the people belonging to that community.
This move is in the best interest of the Trans People , so that the public would start identifying them as normal human beings and offer equal treatment and respect in the society.
The Aqua Line is from Sector 52 in Noida to Depot Metro Station in Greater Noida. This metri line was inaugurated by Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath and was started back in January , 2019. It consists of 21 stations , till now.
