NEWS FLASH - Delhi High Court orders the Central Govt to grant permanent commission to women in all three wings of the armed forces

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Friday directed the Centre to grant permanent commission to women officers in all three wings of the armed forces.

A division bench comprising Justices S K Kaul and M P Garg ordered the defence forces to reinstate all the women officers who had approached the court seeking permanent commission and asked the government to provide all consequential benefit to them.

In its 32-page order, the bench directed the government to reinstate those officers as well as those who retired during the case.

The high court had on December 14 reserved its verdict on the petitions for a direction to the Centre for granting of permanent commission to serving women officers like their male counterparts in the armed forces.

Currently, women are inducted in the Army as officers under the Short Service Commission for a maximum period of 14 years whereas their male counterparts are eligible to receive permanent commission after five years.
