Supreme Court’s direction came on an application filed by the Center seeking six months’ time for implementation of the verdict citing COVID19 pandemic.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave one more month to the Center for implementation of its verdict on giving all serving SSC women officers permanent commission in the Army.

A bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud said that the Center will have to comply with all its directions given in its verdict. The top court’s direction came on an application filed by the Center seeking six months’ time for implementation of the verdict citing the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a landmark verdict on 17 February, the top court had directed that women officers in the Army be granted permanent commission and command postings, rejecting the Center’s stand of their physiological limitations as being based on “sex stereotypes” and “gender discrimination against women”.

It had directed the Center that within three months, all serving Short Service Commission (SSC) women officers have to be considered for Permanent Commissions (PCs) irrespective of them having crossed 14 years or, as the case may be, 20 years of service.
