A metro service in India has stepped in to provide accommodation for 23 transgender women it employed, after they could not find permanent housing.

Nine transgender women employed with the Cochin metro had quit as they said no-one was willing to rent to them.

A senior spokesperson for Cochin Metro told the BBC that they had decided to provide hostel accommodation and transport at a nominal fee.

It is the first government agency to allot roles for transgender people.
