The Rajasthan High Court has ordered the police department to induct first transgender in the police department on Monday.

Ganga kumari was initially denied the position because of her gender in 2015. She was selected in the police recruitment exams in 2013, but was not allowed to join after the medical examination, when the recruiters noticed that she was a transgender.

Kumari from Jalore district approached the High Court stating that despite being eligible, she was not recruited.

It's the first time that Rajasthan appointed a transgender woman for a government job.
