Govt to prioritise 'Agneepath' scheme soldiers for recruitment in paramilitary forces, Assam Rifles

Agneepath Scheme: 

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday said that soldiers recruited in the armed forces under the new short-term recruitment policy called ‘Agneepath’ will be given priority for jobs in the paramilitary forces and Assam Rifles after completing four years of service under the scheme.

The new recruitment scheme offers Indian youth the opportunity to serve in the regular cadre of the armed forces for a period of four years.

The Union Home Minister’s Office tweeted, “The ‘Agneepath Yojana’ is a far-sighted and welcome decision by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the bright future for the youth.”

In this context, today the Union Home Ministry has decided to give priority to soldiers who have completed 4 years under this scheme in the Indian Army, the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the Indian Navy for recruitment in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and the Assam Rifles.

According to the Ministry of Defence, the ‘Agneepath Yojana’ will regulate the recruitment of personnel below officer rank (PBOR) in all the three armed services. The recruits, who will be known as ‘Agniveer’, will create a different rank in all three services and will also wear a different emblem as part of their uniform.

Amit Shah said that the decision of the Union Home Ministry would help the youth trained under the ‘Agneepath Yojana’ to further contribute to the service and security of the country. He said that detailed planning and work has started on this decision.
