QPQ not needed. New enough, plenty long enough, with a cited and present hook. As a note for the future, reference citations go after periods when placed at the end of sentences and after commas at the end of a clause. This is ready to go. Raymie (t • c) 04:42, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
Also the provisions in discussion are of the 2019 bill as they are pari materia to those of the 2018 bill minus the changes following protests and criticism. --Tamravidhir (talk) 18:55, 20 September 2019 (UTC) edited: Tamravidhir (talk) 18:59, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
That's exactly what I was referring to. Other parts of the article allude to provisions in earlier versions of the bill that were later removed, e.g. in the "Criticism and reactions" section: The 2019 bill did away only with few of the criticised provisions of the 2016 and 2018 bills, such as the District Screening Committee and the criminalisation of begging. I think it would be clearer if these were described in the "Statutory provisions" section (possibly in a little more detail). Even though the title is Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill, 2019, the article is about the whole history of the bill, including its earlier iterations.

@Colin M: I understand. I will add a para discussing the 2018 bill's provisions. Quite late here today but surely over the weekend. Thanks for pointing it out--Tamravidhir (talk) 19:13, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
Looks good, I've removed the template. I think it might be easier to read if it were organized into subsections (per provision - e.g. begging, anti-discrimination, transgender children, certification), or maybe if it had a bulleted list? But that's just a minor quibble. Colin M (talk) 21:36, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
@Colin M: I understand that. The only reason I chose to not do that is that it may not be stylistically the best. Hence, I chose to focus the first paragraph on controversial provisions of the 2018 bill and then moving on to provisions of the 2019 bill, while drawing parallels with the 2018 version. It would indeed be of help if you choose to edit the section to make it more understandable and coherent. --Tamravidhir (talk) 05:42, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
