Permanent commission in Army to be opened for women from April 2020



Permanent commission in the army will be open for women officers from April 2020.

The defence ministry earlier this year said that women officers will be granted permanent commission in the army in all the 10 branches in which they are inducted into under short service commission. Before this announcement, women were given permanent commission in only two streams- Judge Advocate General and Army Education Corps. Other eight streams- Signals, Engineers, Army Aviation, Army Air Defence, Electronics and Mechanical Engineers, Army Service Corps, Army Ordnance Corps and Intelligence- are now also open for permanent commission for women.
