Indian Army

Shouldn’t women officers get the chance to rise through the ranks?

After the Central government cited physical and physiological reasons for why women could not be given commanding positions in the Indian Army, the Supreme Court has observed that there needs to be a “change of mindset” and display of “administrative will”.
