Indian Army has kickstarted the process to grant Permanent Commission to eligible women officers, nearly two weeks after the defence ministry approved the proposal.
It has asked women officers to apply for permanent commission by 31st August this year.
Detailed administrative instructions have been issued to all affected women officers giving out guidelines for submission of applications for consideration by the Board.
Women Officers who have joined the Indian Army through the Women Special Entry Scheme and Short Service Commission Women are being considered and all of them have been instructed to submit their application forms, option certificate and other related documents to Army.
The Defence Ministry said, due to the prevailing restrictions imposed by the COVID situation, multiple means of dissemination of instructions have been adopted to ensure that these documents reach all affected women officers on priority.
The Selection Board will be scheduled immediately after receipt and verification of applications.
