New Delhi, July 6
The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave yet another month to the Centre for implementation of its verdict on giving all serving SSC ladies officers everlasting fee within the Army.
A bench headed by Justices D Y Chandrachud stated that the Centre must adjust to all its instructions given in its verdict. The high courtroom’s path got here on an utility filed by the Centre searching 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 ladies 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) ladies officers must be thought-about for Permanent Commissions (PCs) regardless of them having crossed 14 years or, because the case could also be, 20 years of service. PTI
