Delhi police department has decided to launch a new skill development scheme, under YUVA Scheme, especially aimed at transgender individuals. Since its inception, the scheme has only received fizzling response from the target beneficiaries. Societal taboos and personal inhibitions bar transgender individuals from applying under this scheme. The police reached out to activists and senior transgender individuals so that they can encourage young transgender people. Delhi police has teamed up 25 skill development centers. Applicants will be able to attain necessary vocational or skill development training at these centers.
