In less occurring event, the naval branch of the Indian Armed Forces has fired a sailor for sex change change surgery on 9th October.
"We have asked the government on the action to be taken by us regarding the sailor as she has spent her own money to change sex", a Navy source told Mail Today. And in a landmark ruling in 2014, India's Supreme Court also recognised transgender people as a third gender.
But legal experts say that transgender people in India are in a odd situation: on the one hand, they are legally recognised and protected under the Constitution, but on the other hand they may have been judged to be breaking the law if they have consensual gay sex.
The Navy has discharged the services of a sailor who underwent gender reassignment surgery to become a woman.

The issues cropped up when the sailor returned to INS Eksila base in Visakhapatnam after the surgery.
The Indian Navy said in a statement Giri was discharged because altering gender status violates recruitment regulations.
In August, the process for her discharge from service was initiated, and the case has now been taken up with the Ministry of Defence.

Sabi had earlier hailed the Indian Navy and its "liberal policy" giving her an alternative deployment in the service.
The sailor was allegedly kept in a psychiatric ward for six months by the maritime force.
Stating that she is a citizen of India and has the fundamental rights as that of any other male or female citizen of the country, Sabi said her "changed" gender identity did not deem her unfit of serving the nation. "They tried to prove I am mentally unfit but they failed", she claimed. After she resumed duties, her gender change status came to light only after Sabi developed a urinary tract infection. This forced her to consult civil doctors in Visakhapatnam, she added.
"I served the country for seven years".
