A paradigm shift in the Armed Forces’ recruitment policy. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young people to serve their country and contribute to nation building while also establishing a youthful and dynamic profile.
Agniveers can train in the best institutions to improve their skills and qualifications. There iswill be abundance of well-disciplined and skilled youth with a military ethos in civil society. Adequate re-employment opportunities for those who will returnto society and may serve as role models for the next generation.
The Agniveers will also receive a sizable monetary reward. The scheme offers a handsome sum of 11-12 lakh as a Seva Nidhi package to those who are demobilised after completing their service. Furthermore, it will help the Agniveers start their second career by prioritising the provision of necessary bank loans.
This will give you the opportunity to work for yourself. A broader cross-section of the population will have access to various government schemes that were previously restricted to a select few. There are numerous benefits, which can be listed as follows:
Many people will have the opportunity to serve in the Armed Forces and in turn serve their country.
Preparation for a disciplined life.
Exposure to the wider world for many rural youth, which would otherwise ends when he is rejected from the recruitment rally, as many do not have the wherewithal to leave their village.
With this scheme, the Army will get a better pool to choose the best and in turn create a large pool for other organisation to choose the best from the disciplined lot. A win win situation for many.
The government’s package and financial assistance will provide a foundation for many rural youths to start new businesses or invest in agriculture.
The Army will become a young and fit army. The dead weight due to the large number of low medical categories will be drastically reduced, and the best will be available with the Regiment.
Medical resources will be better utilised.
Our strategic leaders’ desire for a lean and fit army can be realised.
The trained soldiers will have more opportunities in other services because they are drawn from the same pool from which other services must select the best. They will have an advantage over others, and I am confident that it will favour Agniveers.
Those who wish to work will be prioritised in CAPFs, police, Assam rifles, and police and allied forces in multiple states. Skills and work experience in a wide range of fields, including engineering, mechanics, law and order, and so on.
They can accrue the advantages of the various benefits linked with this scheme like furtherance of their education, bridging courses and many more..
Protests in the country are organised and sponsored by vested interests. The majority of people are pleased with this scheme because of its inherent benefits.
