The Bombay high court has ruled that a transgender person can claim compensation under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, rejecting a man's appeal against paying maintenance to his transgender partner.

The ruling noted that a transgender person who has undergone surgery to change gender to female is an "aggrieved person" under the Act.
