The Supreme Court pulled up the Army for its “regressive mindset” even as permitting girls, as an interim measure, to take the National Defence Academy (NDA) exam on September 5.

A Bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Hrishikesh Roy discovered it “absurd” that girls have been now no longer allowed to appear for the NDA even after the apex court, in a judgment, directed Permanent Commission for girls withinside the Army.

“Why are you persevering with on this direction? Even after Justice D.Y. Chandrachud’s judgment increasing the horizons and increasing Permanent Commission withinside the Army to girls? This is unfounded now! We are locating it absurd! Will the Army simplest act whilst a judicial order is passed? Not otherwise,” Justice Kaul requested Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati.

Senior advise Chinmoy Pradip Sharma, advocates Mohit Paul and Sunaina Phul were regarded as the petitioners.
