New Delhi: The Indian Army is all set to start online registration of women for recruitment as soldiers into the military police for the first time in history.
The project was put forward by General Bipin Rawat soon after taking over as Army Chief. The final approval for the project was provided by the Defence Ministry recently.
It was reported in January that women would be inducted in a graded manner to eventually comprise 20 per cent of the total Corps of Military Police.
The “historic” decision to induct women in the military police was aimed to enhance their representation in the armed forces, stated Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman earlier.
Accordingly, the Army chalked out induction of approximately 800 women in military police with a yearly intake of 52 personnel per year.
The notification is available at the official website of the Indian Army — https://joinindianarmy.nic.in/bravo/notifications.htm
The application process for the same will start from April 25, 2019, and will end on June 8, 2019. In order to get shortlisted, the candidates are required to qualify the Common Entrance Exam (CEE) which will be followed by the Physical Endurance Test (PET). As per the official notification, through this recruitment drive, 100 vacancies will be filled. All other details for the same will be available.
