We introduce and study generalized transversal lightlike submanifold of indefinite Sasakian manifolds which includes radical and transversal lightlike submanifolds of indefinite Sasakian manifolds as
its trivial subcases. A characteristic theorem and a classification theorem of generalized transversal lightlike submanifolds are obtained.
