After 23 years, the Indian Navy is deploying women officers on warships. Four women Navy officers have recently taken up positions on warships. Two are in charge of INS Vikramaditya and two are in charge of INS Shakti. One of the people in charge of the INS force is a woman doctor. “We work shoulder to shoulder with our male counterparts,” the officer said.
“Four Indian Navy women officers have been deployed on warships in recent times. Two of them are posted on the aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya while two are deployed onboard the Indian naval tanker ship INS Shakti,” spokesperson of Indian Navy said on Monday. Separate toilets and cabins for women were provided on warships a few years ago on its warships to prepare the vessels for lady officers.
