Personality of an Agniveer – The introduction will be so unique that he will stand apart in the crowd.

What will be the impact of this plan on the operational preparedness of the Armed Forces?

This scheme will increase the operational effectiveness of the armed forces. Equipped with a youthful image, more capable of entering the battlefield with less trepidation, it is expected that these personnel will have a higher risk taking ability. With the incorporation of technology and improvement in training programmes, the Armed Forces will ensure that the personnel inducted under the scheme have the same skills as are required to meet the operational challenges. As the training standards in the Armed Forces are clearly defined and monitored by the highest authorities, it will be ensured that Agniveer lives up to the highest professional standards.

The scheme envisages a young age image of the armed forces. Are the age-related eligibility criteria for enrollment under this scheme different as compared to the earlier practice?

Candidates who fulfill other educational, physical and medical criteria between the age of 17 and a half years to 21 years will be extensively enrolled as Agniveer. The objective of this scheme is to promote the initiative of “Skill India” by enrolling eligible candidates holding ITI/Diploma with necessary skills for certain technical professions in future.

Can Agniveer opt for enrollment in the permanent cadre?

All Agniveers will be provided an opportunity to apply for enrollment in the permanent cadre after they complete their period of engagement as per the organizational requirements and policies announced by the Armed Forces. These applications will be considered through a centralized transparent strict screening system based on merit and performance in service. Up to 25% of Agniveers will be selected for enrollment in the permanent cadre as per the extant terms and conditions. The selection of Agniveers for further enrollment in the Armed Forces would be within the prerogative of the Government through prescribed policies.

How does this scheme compare with other countries?

The methodology of inducting, retaining and de-service of Armed Forces personnel in these countries was carefully analyzed to adopt the best practices being followed in various developed countries.

The following facts emerged from this analysis:

  • Predominantly Volunteer Model: All countries, including countries with compulsory military service, have armed forces with a volunteer nature after the mandatory military service expires. 
  • Enrollment procedures: Most countries follow different models of enrollment at different stages of a military career that allow soldiers to voluntarily continue or be released from service.
  • Retention in service: All countries retainsoldiers in service after an initial mandatory service period, based on their choice and a meritorious selection process.

  • Training: The initial training period is short in all countries. After a soldier is selected for long-term service, he is given special training.
  • Incentives on discharge: These incentives vary from country to country but are generally in the following areas:

– Discounts/incentives for pursuing higher education.
– Financial package on release of service.
– Credits in education qualifications for the type and duration of service rendered.
– Preference in recruitment in permanent cadre.
Certain job assurances on release from service.
Agneepath scheme aims to follow the model adopted in developed countries and the incentives provided there.

The regimental system is one of the driving forces for soldiers and officers to engage and perform beyond their assigned duties during war. Will the recruitment under this scheme change the system?

We will maintain the regimental system as the scheme envisages selection of the best Agniveers and will ensure unit cohesion only by personnel who prove their mettle. Further, these aspects will be focused and emphasized through the training provided after Agniveer reaches the unit.

Since the period of training is going to be limited, will it be sufficient to meet the operational challenges?

Today’s youth eat better food, run faster and longer, are more tech savvy and are able to adapt more easily to the situation.We aim to harness the talent of the present generation in our training format using technology like simulators to ensure an effective training programme.

As the basic aptitude and qualities of youth have improved over the years, it gives us an opportunity to restructure the training pattern with more time available for both physical and technical training. It also gives us an opportunity to review our existing training patterns to make them contemporary, technology based and in line with the needs of the Armed Forces.

Is the Agneepath scheme likely to be opened for women?

It is envisaged that women will be recruited progressively in future under the Agniveer scheme for induction into the armed forces.

How will this scheme ensure recruitment from all over the country?

The objective of this scheme is to tap the wide-based talent pool of the nation and select the best talent for a career in the Armed Forces.With the introduction of this scheme the present format of selection in the Armed Forces is not being changed.Changes are being made only to the Terms and Conditions of Service.

As you all know that the three services have well established selection centers across the country. These selection centers have enabled the three services to recruit people from even the most remote parts of the country. Since these Selection Centers will continue to take the responsibility of recruitment of personnel, we expect that the all India representation will not be affected by the introduction of this scheme.
