Agnipath Scheme Centre Provides 10% quota reservation for Agniveer in CAPF, Assam Rifles

The Home Ministry said on Saturday that under the Agnipath scheme, Agniveers who have served in the Army for four years will be given 10 percent reservation in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and the Assam Rifles.

Amidst the violent demonstrations against the Agnipath scheme , the central government, which is engaged in reducing the damage, has taken a big decision.

The Home Ministry said on Saturday that under the Agnipath scheme, Agniveers who have served in the Army for four years will be given 10 percent reservation in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and the Assam Rifles. Apart from this, the first batch of Agniveers will get age relaxation of three years for recruitment in CAPF and Assam Rifles.

What is Agnath Yojana?

Agnipath Scheme is a pan-India merit-based recruitment process for the three Services, Army, Air Force and Navy. In this, the youth will be given an opportunity to serve in the regular cadre of the army.

The youth who are recruited under this scheme will be called ‘ Agniveer ‘. Under this, youth will get an opportunity to serve in the army for four years. Thereafter, 25% of the Agniveers will be retained in service on the basis of merit, willingness and medical fitness.

Agnipath Scheme this is the new change

Apart from 10 percent reservation in CAPF and Assam Rifles , Agniveers will get three years relaxation in the maximum age limit to be recruited in these.

The government has already increased the age limit for recruitment to be held under Agnipath scheme from 21 to 23 years this year. In this way, the youth will get a total relaxation of five years in the maximum age of recruitment in CAPF and Assam Rifles.

Agnipath Scheme Age limit raised from 21 to 23 after protest

Within 24 hours of the implementation of the Agnipath scheme, the government had to change its age limit. In fact, it was said in the beginning that only youth up to the age of 21 years can be recruited in the army.

With the announcement of the scheme, its opposition started and the government had to come under pressure and raise the age limit from 21 to 23. The government had cited the reason behind this as the reason behind the stalled recruitment for two years.

Many states have announced to give priority to Agniveers

Uttarakhand, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh have announced to give priority to firefighters in police recruitment , while Haryana, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Uttar Pradesh etc. have given priority to firefighters in all jobs including police.

Many states have also announced to give priority to Agniveers in other schemes. At the same time, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will review this plan today amidst the war on this plan.
