New Delhi, 17/3: The Supreme Court  granted a permanent commission to women officers in the Indian Navy on Tuesday, saying that “women can sail with the same efficiency as male officers and there should be no discrimination.”

The apex court said that it is ‘grave injustice’ to deny of permanent commission to Short Service Commission (SSC) women in the Navy, who have served the nation.
