New Delhi: The Indian Army has identified and begun infrastructure development of units in the Corps of Military Police (CMP) where the first batch of women soldiers will be posted following their training course that begins in December.
The outgoing Army Adjutant General Lt Gen Ashwani Kumar informed about the same here on Thursday.
According to sources, the first batch of 100 women soldiers, who have been short-listed, is scheduled to be inducted into the CMP, most likely in March 2021, after completion of their 61-week training period. These women soldiers will, however, be assigned ‘non-combat’ roles in the Army
“A balance of strength amongst men and women soldiers has been worked out in the CMP units where the first batch of women soldiers will be posted. Infrastructure is being developed in these units for accommodating the women soldiers,” said Lt Gen Kumar.
