The government released a list of things that ‘Agniveers’- people who will get recruited under the ‘Agnipath’ scheme- can opt for after they have served in either the Army, the Navy or the Air Force.
Under the ‘Agnipath’ scheme, 25% of the ‘Agniveers’ will be retained after four years of service. The government stated that rest of the Agniveers can get a head start in life with ₹11.71-lakh exit package.
Those wanting to be entrepreneurs, will get priority in bank loan schemes. Major companies announced they’ll prefer hiring skilled and disciplined Agniveers, the government stated.
