NDA for girls: planning in motion.
NDA has been a dream for all military aspirants whether it is a boy or girl. So far NDA trained only gentlemen cadets. Now it is planning to make some changes. and let the girls walk in and march shoulder to shoulder with their counterparts.
Minister of State for Defence Dr Subhash Bhamre said that steps are being taken to allow the entry of women into combat roles. To defend our borders shoulder to shoulder with our men. It seems the dream of joining the National Defence Academy for the young girl will be a possibility soon. A proposal is being considered to permit the admission of women to the esteemed NDA, Khadakwasla, Pune.
Today only boys can join the NDA. National Defence Academy eligibility requires candidates to complete their 12th to train for the Indian army, air force and the Indian navy. Women can not join the National Defence Academy yet and they can only apply for the Army, Navy, and Airforce after graduation. Opening up the gates of NDA would be a bold move by the government and it will be interesting to see how soon this will come into reality.
The Indian Defence Forces are already at the moment completing the process to introduce permanent commission for women in its services — Army, Navy, and Air Force.
