According to The New Indian Express, some government schools in Karnataka will employ instructors who identify as members of the transgender community as part of an effort to promote gender inclusion.
According to the state government’s decision to reserve one percent of all teaching positions for them during the upcoming recruitment process, members of the transgender community will soon be able to work in the education sector in Karnataka.

According to department officials, the decision was made in light of revisions to the Karnataka Civil Service (General Recruitment) Rules, 1977, implemented in the previous year. According to a petition filed with the Karnataka High Court (in 2021), the revisions were implemented.
