Denial of command assignment retrograde step: Women officers

Women officers have proven their mettle and courage under fire for nearly three decades, and there has never been an occasion of soldiers/men having refused or accepted the command of women, said the women officers in their written submission citing the Centre for delay in bringing the policy for grant of permanent commission to women officers. The written submissions, on behalf of the petitioners, filed by senior advocate Aishwarya Bhati, said, "The demonstrated fact is that the Women Officers have been serving in the 10 Combat Support Arms, for the last 27-28 years and have proven their mettle and courage under fire... To deny them command appointments would be an extremely retrograde step and will inflict irreparable injury to the dignity of these brave women.
