In a landmark judgment, the Indian Air Force has been ordered to  grant permanent commission to women officers.

A group of women officers  had approached the court to get equal rights with male officers.

They will now get permanent commission on completion of their fixed tenure of 15 years, along with financial benefits. 

It should be pointed out that permanent commission does not mean that women will be given an opportunity to serve in the fighting arms - this is a decision which has still not been taken.  Women who work as medical officers have been entitled to full tenure in the past, but women pilots and officers  serving in areas like  Administration, Logistics, Air Traffic, Engineering and were granted only a 15 year term.
