New Delhi, July 6
The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave yet one more month to the Centre for implementation of its verdict on giving all serving SSC girls officers everlasting fee within the Army.
A bench headed by Justices D Y Chandrachud stated that the Centre should adjust to all its instructions given in its verdict. The prime courtroom’s course got here on an utility filed by the Centre looking for six months’ time for implementation of the decision citing the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a landmark verdict on February 17, the highest courtroom had directed that girls officers within the Army be granted everlasting fee and command postings, rejecting the Centre’s stand of their physiological limitations as being based mostly on “sex stereotypes” and “gender discrimination against women”.
It had directed the Centre that inside three months, all serving Short Service Commission (SSC) girls officers must be thought-about for Permanent Commissions (PCs) no matter them having crossed 14 years or, because the case could also be, 20 years of service. PTI
