Two PILs that were submitted in support of the creation of Transgender Protection Cells in the two States have been dismissed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

Dhananjay Chauhan, the petitioner, has also asked for the establishment of a thorough policy on the steps and procedures for protecting transgender people in the respective States.

In the petitioner’s instance, he claimed that he had previously attempted to contact the authorities in both States through letters and emails, but to no avail.

The respondents, which are the States of Punjab and Haryana, respectively, said they would take the petitioner’s arguments into consideration and quickly make a decision in line with the law.

After hearing from both parties, the division bench of Chief Justice Ravi Shanker Jha and Justice Arun Palli dismissed the petitions, saying that the relevant authorities would be liberty to review the situation while taking all relevant facts into account, and they would then accept or reject it in accordance with the provisions of the law.
