The Agnipath Scheme was recently introduced by the government in an effort to transform the Armed Forces recruitment system. With the new recruitment process facing the decline of the Opposition groups, the Institute has decided to bring about a change in the age limit for recruiting Agniveers. Offering a one-time withdrawal, the Center on June 16, 2022, announced that the Agniveer Agnipath Scheme's additional years limit was extended to 23 years from 21 years.

Following the launch of the Agnipath program, the entry age for all new recruits has been set at 17 1/2 - 21, the Department of Defense said on Friday.

The Department of Defense, in a statement on Tuesday, said the Agnipath program was designed to strengthen the Armed Forces youth profile. It will provide an opportunity for young people who would like to wear a uniform by attracting talented young people to the community who are in line with modern technology and bring back talented, skilled and motivated workers in the community.

It is envisaged that the middle age profile of the Indian Armed Forces will decrease by approximately 4-5 years with the implementation of this program. The nation will benefit greatly from the inclusion of highly motivated youth with a deep understanding of self-control, diligence and focus that will be competent and capable of contributing to other fields.

This is a major change in the security policy introduced by the Government to usher in a new era in the Human Resources policy of the three Services. The policy, which comes into effect immediately, will govern the registration of these three services.
