SC orders government to grant permanent commission to women army officers
Published: February 17, 2020
The Delhi High Court in 2010 had ordered the Indian government to provide permanent commission to women officers of the Indian Army.
After the Central government challenged the Delhi high court’s ruling in the Supreme Court, the apex court recently directed the government to grant permanent commission to women officers who have already worked as Short service commission officers in the Indian Army. This is to be provided irrespective of their years of service.
