Following massive protests against the New Delhi’s ‘Agnipath’ scheme for the recruitment in the armed forces, the centre on Saturday announced 10 per cent reservation for ‘Agniveers’ in the recruitment of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and Assam Rifles, reported India Today.

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) also decided to give three years of age relaxation in its 17.5-21 years eligibility criteria for recruitment of Agniveers in CAPFs and Assam Rifles.

As per the report, the first batch of recruits will get a relaxation of five years beyond the prescribed upper age limit.

The government unveiled the Agnipath scheme on 14 June for the recruitment of personnel in the Army, Navy, and Air Force, largely on a four-year short-term contractual basis.
