SC allows women to appear for the NDA Exam.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed women to take the National Defence Academy (NDA) exam scheduled for September 5th.

The Apex Court said that admissions will be subject to the final orders of the court. For now the court has permitted women to take the NDA examination as an “interim measure”.

“We will consider the issue of admission of girls to NDA as a policy on September 5,” ruled the Supreme Court bench of Justices SK Kaul and Hrishikesh Roy.

The Supreme Court has pulled up the Indian Army for not allowing women candidates in the NDA, Sainik Schools and other military institutions and called out the “regressive mindset”.
