Army may Induct Women as Jawans via Agnipath Scheme

Currently, the Indian Army has about 1700 women officers across ten different divisions. They serve in diverse roles, from the Corps of Engineers to the Armed Forces Medical Services.

The Indian Army, in a remarkable move toward gender inclusivity, is seriously considering the enlistment of women as jawans. This consideration follows their successful integration into the Corps of Military Police.

Defence and security insiders suggest that the proposal to welcome women as jawans is nearing final stages. It’s highlighted that these potential recruits will join via the Agnipath Scheme, a pathway established since the previous June for soldier-level enlistment.

The Indian Army, which boasts a strength of roughly 13 lakh members, is primarily divided into three branches: combat arms (like infantry and armored units), combat support arms (such as artillery and military intelligence), and services (encompassing the Army Service Corps and Army Medical Corps, among others).

Recent developments highlight that women’s enlistment at the soldier level will mostly be in divisions where women officers are already present. Signifying its commitment to gender diversity, earlier this year, the Army introduced women officers into its artillery wing.

Currently, the Indian Army has about 1700 women officers across ten different divisions. They serve in diverse roles, from the Corps of Engineers to the Armed Forces Medical Services.

The ongoing effort to potentially enlist women as jawans reflects the Indian Army’s dedication to fostering gender diversity, aligning with modern societal norms and international military practices. This initiative not only promotes gender equality but also indicates a wider commitment to the modernization and advancement of the Indian military.
