Third Gender Factor in CAT 2015 Registration

The Supreme Court declared the transgender as the third gender in April 2014, and soon CAT introduced the third option for gender. There are 80 seats for transgender in India’s top B-schools this time.

According to the data of Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, this year a large number of candidates registered as the third gender while there was no registration under the third gender in 2014. So because of this factor a total number of registered candidates will be increased in future.

And now the question arises if they selected. What after they get admission in B-schools? Will there be discrimination?

All the top B-schools say that they will provide the all facilities and opportunities to a transgender student as they would for any other student. But before giving the admission to a transgender,

Institute management should sensitize the faculty and students about gender diversity, before giving the admission to a transgender. Only then we can ensure zero discrimination.
