Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Friday said that female Army personnel should themselves decide on their deployment at border. At present, female Army personnel are not deployed at front-line border.

General Bipin Rawat also mentioned that when jawans are deployed on tanks, they cook on their cook and sleep inside tanks. He also stressed that there are also no toilet facilities available on front-line deployments. Now, it is up to females to decide on their deployment.

General Rawat stressed that if females are ready to confront such situations, then we will consider about their deployment at front-line. He also added that they should work in the same manner as the male personnel.
