COVID 19 Updates Amid Protests, Indian Air Force Releases Detailed Note on Agnipath Scheme

The Agnipath scheme, announced on 14 June, provides for the recruitment of youths in the age bracket of 17-and-half to 21 years for only four years with a provision to retain 25 per cent of them for 15 more years. Later, the government extended the upper age limit to 23 years for recruitment in 2022.

The personnel to be recruited under the new scheme will be known as Agniveers.

“Post the period of four years, all Agniveers will go back to the society. However, based on organisational requirements and policies promulgated by the IAF, Agniveers who have exited will be offered an opportunity to apply for enrolment in the IAF in the regular cadre,” the IAF said.

The Agniveers will not have any right to be selected for further enrolment into the armed forces, and the selection will be the government’s exclusive jurisdiction.

It said subsequent enrolment as airmen into the regular cadre of the IAF, except for medical tradesmen, will be available only to personnel who have completed their engagement period as Agniveers.
