For 1st Time Indian Army Commissions 5 Women Officers into Artillery Regiment

New Delhi: In a maiden development, the Indian Army commissioned five women officers into its artillery regiment. These women officers joined the Regiment of Artillery on Saturday after successfully completing their training at the Officers Training Academy (OTA) in Chennai.

These proud women officers include Lt Mehak Saini, Lt Sakshi Dubey, Lt Aditi Yadav, Lt Rekha Singh and Lt Pious Mudgil.

Out of them, three are posted to units deployed along the borders with China, and the other two in “challenging locations” near the frontier with Pakistan.

In January, Chief of Army Staff Gen Manoj Pande announced the decision of commissioning women officers into artillery units. This proposal was later approved by the Central government.
