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 onwards, a top officer said, adding that they can choose the specialised stream for this during the second year of their service.

The army’s Adjutant General Lieutenant General Ashwani Kumar explained that after women officers opt for a specialised stream under permanent commission, they will undergo training for the stream. “Permanent commission will be open for women from April 2020. During her second and third year of service, she will identify one of the six specialised streams for permanent commission. These include working as a language expert or as an air traffic controller. She will thereafter be trained for what she chose,” Kumar said.

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. Read more
