Update on 24 Sep 2021: Breaking News, UPSC has reopened the NDA 2 2021 registration only for girls today. The last date to apply for the NDA 2 2021 is 08 Sep 2021.
“We are extremely glad to know that the armed forces themselves took the decision to induct women into the NDA,” the Supreme Court said. Today the centre approved the entry of women candidates into NDA. The arrangements will take some time and most likely girls will be able to take the next NDA Exam.
In a path-breaking development, the Centre on Wednesday informed the Supreme Court that it has taken a decision to allow the induction of women into the National Defence Academy (NDA). Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati, representing the Centre, submitted before a bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul that there is a piece of good news as a decision has been taken at the highest-level that women will be inducted for NDA, and the chiefs of three Armed Forces have also agreed.
