SC issues notice to Civil Aviation Ministry, Air India on transgender's plea

The transgender in her PIL claimed that the airline refused to consider her for a job because of her gender.
The petitioner had to apply as a female for a cabin crew job in the airline, but her application was rejected.
The apex court had earlier in 2014 directed the Centre and State Governments to grant legal recognition of gender identity whether it be male, female or third-gender, giving transgenders the right to self-identification of their gender. (ANI)
