SC issue notice to centre asking the denial of women in NDA

A petition was filed by Kush Kalra, an advocate, which said women not being allowed to take admission in the National Defence Academy (NDA) is a violation of the fundamental right of equality and the right to practice a profession. 

“The act of the respondents to categorically exclude eligible and willing female candidates from appearing for the National Defence Academy and Naval Academy Examination over the years, solely on the ground of sex, is a violation of the fundamental right of equality before the law and equal protection of the law. This opportunity to take the National Defence Academy and Naval Academy Examination at the age of 15-18 years, with the eligible academic qualifications is not available to eligible and willing female candidates and the sole reason for this categorical exclusion is on the basis of their sex,” the petition said. 

A bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde hearing this plea then issued notice to the centre, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), and others seeking their response.
