Agneepath Shceme: The Center has outlined the possibilities of many employment opportunities for the Agniveer soldiers after their retirement. These mainly include the priorities of recruitment in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and Assam Rifles. This announcement of the Center failed to address the concerns of the opposition party Congress.
The party warned that the transformative Agneepath plan would reduce the operational effectiveness of the armed forces. A day earlier, the main opposition party had expressed serious concern about the future of these soldiers. In fact, most of them will retire after just four years of brief service.
Agniveer will be the name of the recruitment process
In a radical change in the decades-old defense recruitment process, the government on Tuesday announced the ‘Agneepath’ scheme for the recruitment of soldiers in the Army, Navy and Air Force. Under which the recruitment of soldiers will be done on contract basis for a short period of four years. Under the scheme, about 46,000 soldiers will be recruited in the three services this year. The eligibility age for selection will be between 17 and a half years to 21 years and they will be named as Agniveer.
Home Minister Amit Shah’s office said in a tweet on Wednesday that the Agneepath scheme is a visionary and welcome step by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a bright future for the youth of the country. His office said that in this regard, the Ministry of Home Affairs today decided that Agniveers who have completed four years under this scheme will be given priority in the recruitment of CAPFs and Assam Rifles.
