“You speak of Nari Shakti, show it here”: Supreme Court to Centre over denial of permanent commission to woman Coast Guard officer

The Court further questioned the patriarchal stance of the government and questioned why women officers in the Coast Guard could not be granted PC.

It further highlighted the presence of women in the Navy, questioning why the Coast Guard should be an exception.

“Why be so patriarchal that you do not want see women in the Coast Guard segment? You have women in the Navy. What is so special about Coast Guard? We will open up the whole canvas. Times are gone where we say women cannot be in the Coast Guard. Women can guard the borders. Women can guard the coasts as well,” the Court stated.
