The Delhi High Court yesterday issued notice to the Union Defence Ministry in a plea by the Indian Professional Nurses Association, challenging the exclusion of male nurses under the Indian Military Nursing Service Ordinance and the Military Nurses Services (India) Rules.

The petition, filed through Advocates Amit George and Rishabh Dheer, states that the impugned Ordinance and the Rules are violative of Article 14 of the Constitution inasmuch as they are palpably arbitrary, unreasonable and violate the mandate of equality . . .
