HC questions policy prohibiting married individuals from joining JAG

On Wednesday, the Delhi High Court expressed its disapproval of the government policy that prevents married people from being considered for positions in the Judge Advocate General (JAG) department, the legal branch of the army [Kush Kalra v. Union of India and Anr].

The policy “does not make any sense,” said a division bench led by Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad, who also questioned the Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Chetan Sharma about its relationship to training for the JAG department.

The Court scheduled the matter for further review on March 22, 2023 after giving the government four weeks to submit an affidavit describing the policy issue.
