Army to Induct Women As Jawans In Military Police
The Indian Army has started the process of recruiting women as jawans by starting their online registration for recruitment in the corps of military police. This is the first time they would be taken in as soldiers. Earlier, they were being inducted only as officers. Women will be recruited in a graded manner to eventually comprise 20% of the total Corps of Military Police. Their role will range from probing crime cases to assisting the army in field operations wherever required.
