Airport Authority Updates Record of Employee Who Underwent Sex Reassignment Surgery

Mumbai: The Airport Authority of India (AAI) informed the Bombay High Court on Tuesday that it has updated an employee's records after the person underwent a sex change surgery and changed the gender from male to female.
The 33-year-old employee moved the high court last year seeking a direction to the AAI to update its records and issue her a No Objection Certificate (NOC) so that she could travel to Bangkok for a sex reassignment surgery.
The AAI had said it could not update its records until the petitioner underwent the surgery. As interim relief, another bench of the high court had directed the AAI to incorporate her new name and gender in its records.
On Tuesday, AAI counsel Kavita Anchan told a bench led by Justice Akil Kureshi that in July last year it issued the NOC to the petitioner, following which she underwent the
surgery successfully. The AAI subsequently updated her records and all other relevant details, said advocate Anchan.
