28 Delhi schools declared transgender- inclusive

The schools — 25 of which are government-run in localities such as Seelampur, Batla House, Siraspur Badli, Shahdra, and Rohini —were deemed inclusive on the basis of their actions, such as allotting separate toilet facilities for gender non-conforming children and conducting sessions on transgender-related issues.
