Subject: BOLD STEPS.
Today we are fighting for OROP, but have we shown concern to women Officers also, well not the least. The Article is self explanatory. Women can not be used in Army for Fill in the Blanks. They also deserve Pension after 20 years. Let the Short Service Commission be limited to pensionable mandatory period of min 20 years instead of 10-14 years.. The women too spent their Prime Youth with the forces serving with brother officers, then they are equally entitled for retirement benefits and appropriately placed in allied services or corporate sector after completing their contractual period. Why they should leave short of 4-6 years of completing Pensionable service
