Recent years have seen a significant increase in the prominence and attention given to human rights discussions and debates. Moreover, a lot of world leaders continue to yearn for the successful and complete implementation of their vision of a just society. In a variety of settings, a number of academicians, philosophers, and leaders have disputed this idealistic notion of creating a just society. They argue that a number of stratifying factors, such as caste, class, economic status, and family values, have long caused division in our society. With the passage of time, this stratified society changed and started fining the minority that was less fortunate more and more. Similarly, a sizable segment of the populace referred to as the transgender community has been perceived as a disadvantaged facet of society as a result of various forms of social stratification and certain inherent genetic deficiencies. The transgender community has been unable to exercise even the most basic constitutional rights that are granted to every person under the countrys constitution because of ignorance and inferiority complex. Members of the community have also been socially and economically excluded from society and have been unable to access government aid programs due to the gap created by the discrimination inside the community. Furthermore, transgender people are inadvertently reduced to the status of second-class citizens in a society guided by the constitutional ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity because of a number of laws in the Indian context that only define Indian society in terms of male or female. The current study aims to comprehend the causes of the deprivations placed on transgender people in order to implement and formulate welfare measures specifically for the transgender community and enable its members to access constitutional and statutory mechanisms without facing any discrimination. It is imperative that we create practical measures immediately in order to lessen marginalization and make the transgender populations general socioeconomic growth a reality.
