What is the Agnipath scheme?
The Government of India, on June 14, introduced the Agnipath scheme as a short-term service scheme that will recruit soldiers in the Army, Navy and Air Force, annually, to cut the ballooning salary and pension bills. Under the scheme, the Indian youth will be provided with an opportunity to serve in the Armed Forces as Agniveers, as stated in a report by PTI.
After Agniveers complete their four-year tenure, the scheme provides for retaining 25 per cent of each specific batch for regular service, according to the organisational recruitments and policies announced by the Armed Forces from time to time.
