Prime Minister in his Independence Day speech stated that Women officers who have been slected through the short service commission in defence forces will get the opportunity for a permanent commission. So far, women officers are recruited mostly on short service commission for 14 years, which means thay are not eligible to get pension. Permanent Commission is allowed only in selected streams such as education, legal, medical and dental services. With this implementation, Women officers in the military would get permanent commission on a par with their male counterparts. The contours of implementation are being finalised by the Union Ministry of Defence.
