After the completion of this tenure the male officers can either opt for a Permanent commission or can opt out of the Indian Army. Initially the officers are enrolled for a period of 10 years then they can further continue for a period of 4 years, after this completion of 10+4 years the women officers have to opt out and the men can continue and take up permanent commission or they can also opt out.
