Girls to be inducted in National Defence Academy, Centre tells Supreme Court | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Female candidates will now be inducted in the National Defence Academy, the Centre informed the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
The government added that the decision was taken after consultation with the three service chiefs.
We are extremely glad to know that armed forces themselves took the decision to induct females in NDA, the top court said while lauding the government’s move.
Supreme Court had earlier asked the defence forces to take a more pro-active approach towards gender equality, instead of court directing them to do so.
The top court had also said that the government should recognise the important role performed by women in the defence forces.
