Under the Agnipatham project, youths will be selected for 4 years of service in the army.
Deputy Commander of the Army Lieutenant General BS Raju responded to this.
The Indian Army recruits those who have undergone technical training in ITIs and Polytechnics for the Army’s Technical, Signal and Engineering divisions in the Agnipatham project. They will be upgraded to handle technical equipment in the military. In the first year, firefighters will serve in various divisions of the Indian Army. The Agneepath project will be completely different from the existing military selection system. He said.
The Agneepath project, presented by the federal government, has been criticized by many, including former soldiers, as unfair and detrimental to the capabilities and security of the security forces.
But the main purpose of the new recruitment policy is to curb the growing pension budget in the military. A quarter of the military budget is spent on pensions. Experts say the money could be used to modernize the military if this is prevented.
