The scheme, the government said, will be effective immediately and will create "a more youthful and technologically efficient combat-combat force by ensuring a fine balance between young and experienced personnel" in the armed forces.

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, General Manoj Pandey, Admiral R Hari Kumar and Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhary briefed the media after the Cabinet Committee on Security approved the proposal. The Agneepath scheme - it was earlier proposed as Tour of Duty - is expected to reduce the standing force level to over 13 lakh strong armed forces.

Under this scheme most soldiers will leave the service in just four years. Of the 45,000 to 50,000 recruited annually, only 25 percent will be allowed to continue under permanent commission for the next 15 years. This will significantly reduce the defense pension bill, which has been a major concern of the government for many years.

The recruitment will begin in 90 days which will bring "all India, all category" recruitment to the services. This is particularly important in the military where the regimental system is based on region and caste and has been abolished over time to allow anyone from any race, region, class or religious background to be part of an existing regiment.

Many veterans have raised concerns about how this new structure could be detrimental to the existing structure, where loyalty to the regiment and battalion and maintaining its pride plays an important role as a motivator in difficult situations.

Announcing the plan, Rajnath Singh said, "The effort is that the profile of the armed forces should be as young as that of the larger Indian population." A young armed force will allow them to be easily trained for new technologies.

He said that this would increase employment opportunities and such soldiers would get employment in various sectors due to the skill and experience gained during their four years of service. "This will also lead to availability of highly skilled workforce in the economy which will help in productivity gains and overall GDP growth," Singh said.

The average age in the force today is 32 years, which will reduce to 26 in six to seven years. Additional secretary, Department of Military Affairs, Lt Gen Anil Puri said, it will make the troops "future ready".

The scheme, the government said in its statement, "is designed to enable a youth profile of the armed forces. It will provide opportunities to youth who are interested in donning uniforms by attracting young talent from the society, Those who are more in sync with the contemporary technological trends and skilled, disciplined and motivated manpower can be brought back into the society.”

It said, "This will raise the profile of the youth of the Armed Forces and give a new lease of life to 'Josh' and 'Jazba', while also ushering in a transformational shift towards a more tech-savvy armed force - something it really does." The hourly implementation of this scheme is expected to bring down the average age profile of the Indian Armed Forces by about 4-5 years."

Under the new system, which is only for personnel below officer rank (who do not join the force as commissioned officers), candidates in the age group of 17.5 years to 21 years will be eligible to apply. The standard of appointment will remain the same and appointments will be made twice a year through public meetings.

Once selected, candidates will be given training for six months and then posted for three and a half years. During this period, he will get an initial salary of Rs 30,000 with additional benefits, which will increase to Rs 40,000 after four years of service.

During this period, 30 percent of his salary would be set aside under a service fund program, and the government would contribute an equal amount every month, and that would charge interest. At the end of the four-year period, each soldier will get a lump sum amount of Rs 11.71 lakh, which will be tax-free. They will also get a life insurance cover of Rs 48 lakh for four years. In case of death, the unpaid period salary will exceed Rs 1 crore.

After four years, only 25 per cent of the batch will be re-employed in their respective services for 15 years. For those who are re-elected, the initial four-year period will not be considered for retirement benefits.

Lt Gen Puri said the government would help in the rehabilitation of soldiers who left the service after four years. There will be a "full government" approach, and they will be provided with skill certificates and bridge courses. He said that entrepreneurship will be promoted.

The announcement is expected to elicit mixed reactions from hundreds of thousands of candidates across the country. While there have been no recruitments in the last two years, with the government blaming the Covid-19 pandemic for this, the Agneepath project was also under consideration for almost the same period. Although the announcement will kick-start the recruitment process, many candidates have to take into account the tentative structure and the possibility of being asked to leave after four years.

According to data shared by the Defense Ministry with Parliament on March 28, there are over one lakh vacancies for junior commissioned officers and other posts in the Army. It also noted that out of over 90 recruitment rallies held every year in 2017, 2018 and 2019, only 47 recruitment rallies were held in 2020-2021 and only four in 2021-2022 due to the pandemic.
