Women can take NDA exams, the Supreme Court says; condemns gender discrimination


0

The Supreme Court has allowed women to take the National Defense (NDA) exam scheduled for September 5th. The court allowed women to appear at exams on a “temporary basis.”

The Supreme Court also criticized the military for not allowing women to appear at NDA exams. The Supreme Court further noted that the Indian military’s political decision was based on “gender discrimination”.

“You are forcing the judiciary to continue issuing orders. It is better for you (the army) to structure this than to call court orders. We allow girls who have applied to the court to take the NDA exam because we will consider a larger issue, ”said the Supreme Court bench composed of SK Kaul judge over Hrishikesh Roy.

He also condemned the military for not allowing the candidates to attend admissions to the National Defense Academy, Sainik schools and other military institutions, adding that the Indian military should remove “tokenism”. The Supreme Court criticized the Indian Army for not creating opportunities for women even when the Indian Navy and Air Force did so. “We will consider the issue of admitting girls to the NDA as a policy on September 5,” the Supreme Court further stated.

Judge Kaul also asked if the NDA feeds men in the same 10 streams where women can report. He further regretted that the women were not given a standing committee until the Supreme Court intervened.
