Barring the married from JAG posting makes no sense: Delhi HC | India News – Times of India

Must read

NEW DELHI: Questioning the logic behind not considering married men and women for appointment in the judge advocate general (JAG) department, the legal arm of the Army, the Delhi HC on Wednesday asked the Centre to file an affidavit explainingthe policy.
Such a policy barring married individuals from applying “doesn’t make any sense”, a division bench of chief justice Satish Chandra Sharma and justice Subramonium Prasad said, holding that there was no correlation between marriage and training of candidates selected for Short Service Commission in the Army for entry into JAG department. “What is the rationale of marriage and eligibility? Put it on an affidavit that a person trained for arms cannot be married. Put the policy on record because marriage and training can have no correlation,” it told the Centre’s counsel.
The court granted four weeks’ time to the government to file an affidavit and posted the matter for hearing on March 22, 2023.
