Due to the changing societal trends and increasing complexity of military roles, women have been inducted into the Indian Armed Forces since 1992 and Permanent Commission was granted to them in 2008. Since war is viewed to be fought by men, the essential “masculinity” of the Army has been maintained by assigning them support roles.
