In a watershed moment for the Indian military, the Supreme Court today said women officers in the Army can get "command and criteria" appointments on par with male officers, asserting that the government's arguments against it were "discriminatory", "disturbing," and based on stereotype. The Supreme Court also said women who have served less than 14 years in the Short Service Commission (SSC) in the Army can also be considered for permanent commission. "We see no reason not to grant permanent commission to those who had have more than 14 years in service," the court said, commenting that there is a "fundamental fallacy" in the policy.
