She will be appointed as the military legal expert with the government of Seychelles. The main role of Jyoti would be to update the government of Seychelles officials on the defence and military act.

The Indian Army is also preparing to induct women in the Military Police Corps. In April 2019, the Indian Army started the process of inducting women as jawans by starting their online registration for recruitment in the Corps Of Military Police.

India Army will induct women in a graded manner to eventually compromise 20% of the total Corps of Military Police.
