Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday announced that 'Agiveers recruited that the 'Agnipath scheme will get preference for appointment in Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and Assam Rifles.
The Union government on Tuesday (Jun 14) unveiled 'Agnipath', a new recruitment scheme, by radically overhauling the decades-old selection process in a bid to bring in fitter and younger troops to deal with future security challenges facing the nation.
Under the scheme, around 46,000 soldiers will be recruited this year between the ages of 17 and a half years and 21 years into the three services. Recruitment will begin within 90 days which will bring “all India, all class” recruitment to the services. Of the 45,000 to 50,000 recruited annually, 25 per cent will be allowed to continue for another 15 years under permanent commission.
In a tweet, Home Minister Amit Shah's office on Wednesday said the Agnipath scheme is a visionary and welcome decision by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a bright future of the country's youth.
