The Central Government has informed the Supreme Court that women can be admitted to the National Defense Academy (NDA) and the Naval Academy. The decision is part of an effort to end gender discrimination in the military. The Center has stated its position in the court while considering the petitions filed alleging that denial of entry to women in the NDA and the Naval Academy is a violation of fundamental rights.

Aishwarya Bhatti, Additional Solicitor General for the Central Government, told the court yesterday that it was decided to appoint women to the rank of permanent commission through the ND, which provides training and training for permanent recruitment to the Indian Armed Forces. But Bhatti also pointed out that it is practically difficult to get admission this academic year.

There are currently no guidelines for admitting women. Bhatti also asked the court to take time to prepare them. Welcoming the decision, the court allowed time for the central government to prepare a roadmap. The Supreme Court opined that change does not happen overnight and that the military expects more intervention in matters of gender justice without waiting for court orders.

The court had criticized the government during the hearing of the case on the 18th of last month. The court observed that it was a matter for the government to prepare its mind on ensuring equality in the defense forces, and warned that it would be appropriate for the change to be voluntary. A bench of Justices SK Kaul and MM Sundaresh heard the case.
