Army to get first woman ADC to  Commander

 Lieutenant Ganeve Lalji—a  young intelligence officer—is set to create history by becoming the first woman to be appointed as a key aide to an Army Commander as part of Army Chief Gen Bikram Singh’s efforts to provide more avenues to women in the force.

She will become the aide-de-camps (ADC) of Central Army Commander Lt Gen Rajan Bakshi, who will be taking over his post in Lucknow on July 1.

ADCs are officers who serve as a personal assistant to top officers including the Army Chief and Army Commanders. A third generation Army officer, Lt Lalji was commissioned in the Corps of Military intelligence in 2011 and has recorded several achievements during her Young Officers’ course in Pune, an Army official said on Friday. She has been selected for the appointment after a rigourous selection process, the official said.
