The Supreme Court Monday cautioned the Cine Costume Make-Up Artist and Hair Dressers Association over its reluctance in granting membership to female artists and said that frivolous excuses in this regard will not be tolerated.
“The association is bent upon in not granting the membership adopting one excuse or the other. Possibly they feel that they rule some kind of empire and they would not allow anyone to enter. This kind of obstinacy speaks eloquently about the attitude and we do not appreciate the said attitude of the office-bearers,” said a bench led Justice Dipak Misra.
The court said it has already made it clear by its previous order that any form of gender bias would not be permitted and that the association was now bound to grant membership to all eligible women too as make-up artists.
