India’s First ‘Trans Tea Stall’ Set Up At Guwahati Railway Station

Guwahati: In a bid to empower the transgender community, a ‘Trans tea stall’ was opened at Guwahati Railway station.

The tea stall will be fully managed by the transgender community, the Northeast Frontier Railway official said.

The initiative caught Anand Mahindra’s attention too and he shared pictures of the new stall on Twitter. He tagged Ashwini Vaishnaw, Minister of Railways, in his post.

“This one small, initiative is, in my view, as significant & transformational as your many other progressive projects. Indian railways carries over 8 billion people. And most important excludes no one. Bravo @AshwiniVaishnaw,” Anand Mahindra wrote sharing pictures.

Yesterday, the railway minister unveiled India’s first “trans tea stall” at a railway platform. The tea stall has been deployed at Guwahati railway station.

The idea to open the ‘Trans tea stall’ was generated and implemented by the North East Frontier Railway (NEFR) to empower the community.

The NEFR collaborated with the All Assam Transgender Association for the initiative.

The Centre had last year approved a comprehensive scheme ‘Support for Marginalised Individuals for Livelihood and Enterprise’ which includes a sub-scheme for rehabilitation and welfare of transgender people.
