New recruitment in the three services only through Agneepath scheme, what will happen to those who have given the exam earlier? Learn


New Delhi: The Government of India announced a new ‘Agneepath Scheme’ for the recruitment of soldiers in the Army, Navy and Air Force. Under this, soldiers will be recruited for four years. These soldiers will be called ‘Agniveer’. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh announced it to the media shortly after the new scheme was approved in the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) meeting. The youth will recognize the ‘profile’. Army Chief General Manoj Pandey said, “Agneepath scheme aims to bring about a paradigm shift in recruitment in the armed forces.” With the radical change in the recruitment process, the recruitment of soldiers will be initially for a period of four years, but some of them will be retained. “Under the Agneepath scheme, Indian youth will be provided an opportunity to serve in the armed forces as ‘Agniveers’,” the Defense Minister said. Navy Chief Admiral R Hari Kumar said the scheme would ensure massive talent accumulation for recruitment into the armed forces.

What will happen to those who have given the exam?
The Air Force Chief said that all the recruitment will be done under the Agneepath scheme. That is, the youth who had given the Airman exam, now their result will not come. They have to apply again under Agneepath scheme. The biggest blow for the youth who were waiting for recruitment for two years. Those youths will be disappointed who had cleared the medical and physical recruitment in the army.

The ‘Agneepath’ scheme, earlier named ‘Tour of Duty’, was launched in the presence of the Chiefs of the three Services. The new scheme was announced after extensive deliberations over the last two years. The soldiers recruited under this scheme will be called ‘Agniveer’. At present, the Army recruits youth under ‘Short Service Commission’ for an initial tenure of 10 years, which can be extended up to 14 years.

The new scheme aims to reduce the salary and pension expenses of the three services, which have increased rapidly. Defense budget of Rs 5,25,166 crore for the year 2022-23 includes Rs 1,19,696 crore for defense pension. Rs 2,33,000 crore was allocated for revenue expenditure. Revenue expenditure includes expenditure on payment of salaries and maintenance of establishments.
