The Indian Navy, in a major step, recently deployed four women officers onboard its warships after a gap of around 23 years. For the first time in 1998,\u00a0women officers started getting deployed onboard warships\u00a0but the decision was changed soon after due to certain logistical and other issues. The lady officers were posted on two different warships recently. Two of them were posted on the aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya while two others were deployed on the tanker ship INS Shakti. The Indian Navy\u00a0had started building separate cabins and toilets for women officers a few years ago on its warships to prepare the vessels for lady officers.
