Command roles for women officers in Indian Army: SC

40

New Delhi: The Supreme Court today said women officers in the Army can get command positions on par with male officers, asserting that the government’s arguments against it were “discriminatory”, “disturbing,” and based on stereotype.

In its verdict on Centre’s appeal against the Delhi High Court direction, the SC on Monday said the permanent commission will apply to all women officers in the Army in service, irrespective of their years of service.

The Supreme Court also directed the Centre to grant permanent commission within three months to all women officers in Army who opt for it.

The SC added that all terms of appointments of women officers shall be same as their male counterparts.
