Netizens react to viral image of all-women batch at NDA

Like Akshay Kumar, social media users also showered praise on the women cadets who were seen posing in the photo. One netizen wrote, "Jai hind (sic)." Another commented, "Proud moment (sic)."

It needs to be recalled that The Supreme Court, in an order in August 2021, paved the way for the entry of women into the prestigious military training academy. 77 lakh applications from women candidates were received for entry into the National Defence Academy (NDA). 

In November 2021, 1.77 lakh women appeared for the NDA exam. The final list of selected candidates for this exam was published on 14 June, 2022. Out of the 19 women selected, ten will join the army, six the air force, and three will be in the navy, reports say.
