Pune,: In a press conference, while attending the passing out parade ceremony at National Defence Academy, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said that induction of women in Army is not new as women officers are being inducted in all the services. Rawat also spoke about the role of women in defence forces.
The Army Chief said they are exploring, if women can be given permanent commission. “In some fields where we need permanency and male officers in a command-oriented Army don’t fit everywhere. Keeping women officers in fields like language interpreter, military diplomacy will be beneficial,” he said
