On Thursday, the Supreme Court listed 26 prominent female Army officers who broke the glass ceiling but stumbled upon an unsurpassed “structure created by men for men” in the Army to be disqualified from the permanent commission (PC).
A bench of judges DY Chandrachud and MR Shah said: “Even female officers who have been awarded the prestigious recognition card of the Chief of Staff of the Army (COAS) have been denied PC.
“As an example, Lt. Col. Shikha Yadav (as well as several other female officers) have been said to have been denied the CP, although they have been awarded the COAS mention. Lieutenant Colonel Tashi Thapliyal received the Vishisht Seva medal. Several female officers who have served in UN missions abroad have been denied CP. There are female officials who have excelled in national sporting events, exemplified by Major Pallavi Sharma, who has a proven track record in shooting championships that has been ignored. ”
The bank added: “We cite these examples only to reflect the outstanding nature of the service of women officers of the Short Service Commission. We do so in full recognition of the fact that these cases are simply a drop in the ocean of the contribution of women officers in the military. ”
