As women are excelling in every single field of life, the Supreme Court has taken a historic decision that will help the women of India get into the defense services. The Supreme Court has taken a decision on 8th September that the National Defence Academy will now have the induction of women into their training courses. This has been an unprecedented move in the history of Indian forces. It is indeed very empowering to see the topmost judicial body of the nation acknowledge the fact that women can achieve anything, especially things which have traditionally been considered to be a man’s area.

Bench’s Decision About Girls’ Admission In National Defence Academy

Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul had been the presiding judge over the bench in this issue. Additional Solicitor General, Aishwarya Bhati, had been representing the government in this matter. Justice Kaul has informed that the decision has been taken by the higher authorities to allow women into the National Defence Academy from now. This decision has been supported by the three chiefs of the Armed Forces of India as well. Armed forces have always been the most respected segment within the country. However, Justice Kaul had observed that the forces have several milestones to reach yet in terms of gender equality.

Aishwarya Bhati has applauded the decision and has mentioned that this will be a path-breaking and historic reform in the Armed Forces of India. The justice bench had been extremely glad to know that this decision about the inclusion of women had not been forced by any governmental or non-governmental agency. In fact, the Armed forces themselves have decided that it is time to include female fighters in the National Defence Academy. An affidavit will be filed soon in order to allow the admission of the girls into NDA.
