Correct Answer: D
Solution :[d] The Union government has decided to grant Permanent Commission to Short Service Commission (SSC) women officers in two of the non-combat branches. Till now, women from the non-medical streams were allowed to serve only for a maximum of 14 years as short-service commission (SSC) officers. Twelve serving women officers have been approved by the Army for Permanent Commission in the Education Corps and the Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Branch in November 2010. Currently, permanent commission women officers are employed only in the medical, dental and nursing services of the Army.
