Tamil Nadu is the first state in India to implement a transgender welfare board in 2008. They are called Aravani Welfare boards. However, it does not recognise trans men and a physical examination is required for the issue of ID cards. The state of Tamil Nadu offers free registration of lands and ration cards; soft loans to incentivise the establishment of businesses; vocational training ; and free health insurance to trans people.
