Following the direction of the Supreme Court, now the Indian Army has given permanent commission to 147 more women officers. It was only after the order of the first court that the army had set up a special board for women officers and gave a permanent commission. Some of the women officers who had dropped out in this screening were directed by the court to look into their case again. After this, now 147 more women officers have been given permanent commission.
In this way, now a total of 615 women officers were considered, out of which 424 have been given permanent commission. The results of some women officers have been stalled due to administrative reasons.
All women officers who have been given permanent commission will be given special training courses so that they can be prepared for higher roles in the Indian Army. A batch of 33 women officers have completed this training.
According to the Indian Army, women officers who were considered for permanent commission but did not succeed, would also be entitled to pension after completing at least twenty years of service.
