SC TO HEAR ARMY RECRUITMENT CRITERIA BASED ON CASTE, RELIGION

Inside India

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a plea demanding abolishment of the Army’s recruitment criteria allegedly based on caste, region and religion. A bench of Justices K.S Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra asked the petitioner, a doctor from Rewari in Haryana, to supply the copy of the petition to the solicitor general who will assist the court. The petitioner, I.S Yadav, submitted in his plea that unlike the Air Force and the Navy, there is “discriminatory classification” for recruitment on the basis of caste, region and religion and said the government should come up with a national policy for recruitment in Army. “At recruitment stage there cannot be caste-cum-religion-cum-region based classification. There cannot be specific recruitment on the basis of caste, region and religion to various regiments like the Maratha Regiment, the Rajasthan Rifles, the Dogra Regiment, the Jat Regiment, etc. This classification of the Army is a British legacy and is not sanctioned by any law made by Parliament,” the petitioner said.
