Finally, Himachal Pradesh has an all women India Reserve Battalion, another step that the government has taken with a view to empower women.
Indeed a laudable step, this is the first ever IRB Women Battalion for the State which will also provide employment opportunities to women. The number of IRBs in the State has gradually risen to five. The step indeed assures participation of women in the mainstream and strengthens them financially. The Battalion would be stationed at Bilaspur as its Headquarter.
