New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday directed the Army to reinstate 11 short service commission women officers who had been released after completion of 14 years in service.
The apex court asked the Army to take the officers back from September 12 continuing their service from the date they joined.
A bench of justices JM Panchal and HL Gokhale said the order reinstating them would be subject to the outcome of the appeal filed by the army against the March 12, 2010 judgment of the Delhi High Court.

The high court had earlier directed it to grant permanent commission to 11 serving women officers, who had filed a petition.
