50 percent of Agniveer may be deployed in permanent force, Indian Defense Ministry takes big decision
Agnipath scheme created a lot of anger among the youth of India. Under this scheme, young job aspirants are recruited into the Indian Army but the age limit has been reduced considerably. On top of that, army recruitment in this scheme is only for a few years. As a result, the youth of the country were angry with this worry that the future may sink into darkness if the working age is passed.
But, the Union Ministry of Defense is thinking of bringing major changes to this project.
According to the sources of the Ministry of Defence, 50 per cent of India's 'Agniveers' can be employed in the permanent cadre of the Indian Army after the recruitment of the Agnipath project. The age limit is also expected to increase for recruitment under Agnivir in the Army. According to sources, it is said that there is a plan to increase the age limit of recruitment from 21 to 23 years.
According to the sources of the army, efforts are being made to meet the shortages in the Indian army. As a result, among all the youth who the Agnipath project will recruit, the eligible ones will be selected and given the opportunity to join the permanent cadre. As per the current rules of Agnipath scheme, so far 25 per cent candidates from Agniveer can be appointed to the permanent cadre. There are plans to increase that amount by another 25 per cent.
It may be noted that under the Agniveer recruitment process, the Indian Army has recruited 40 thousand Agniveers in two batches. Out of these 40 thousand, the first batch was inducted in the first half of December 2022 and the second batch was inducted in the first half of February 2023. These soldiers will be recruited in the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force. This recruitment process will be completed through Agnipath project.Good news for the middle class, gold is cheaper in one blow! Check the new price before buying
