In a bid to empower Transgenders, a Trans tea stall has been opened at Guwahati Railway station o­n 10th March, 2023 which will be fully managed by the Transgender community. This initiative by N. F. Railway is a first of its kind over the Indian Railways. It has been done with active collaboration of All Assam Transgender Association.

Shri Anshul Gupta, General Manager of Northeast Frontier Railway inaugurated the ‘’TRANS TEA STALL‘’ at platform number 1 of Guwahati railway station in presence of Swati Bidhan Baruah , Associate Vice Chairman of the Transgender Welfare Board of Assam.

During the inaugural ceremony Shri Anshul Gupta said that NFR has taken the initiative for empowerment of transgender. He further said that this initiative is the first of its kind in NFR as well as in Indian Railways. Also he said that this is also first such initiative in any Central govt organization and NFR will take more such initiatives in future.
