In a progressive move, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has taken the initiative to hire 25 individuals from the third gender community.
The recruited personnel will be assigned as security guards at prominent locations such as the Rajiv Gandhi Zoo, Kamala Nehru Hospital, PMC’s main building, and will also contribute to the anti-encroachment drive.
Vikram Kumar, the Commissioner of Pune Municipal Corporation, expressed his enthusiasm regarding this groundbreaking step. He stated, “By integrating the third gender into our workforce, we are taking the first stride towards inclusivity. To further foster awareness and sensitivity towards the third gender, we will establish a committee of NGOs dedicated to the cause and PMC employees.
