Raising Agnipath age limit will benefit large number of youth: Amit Shah

NEW DELHi: Amit Shah believes that raising the Agnipath age restriction will benefit a large number of young people.
Home Minister Amit Shah said on Friday that the Centre's decision to raise the upper age limit for entering the Agnipath scheme for recruitment in the defence services will benefit a huge number of young people.

He claimed that the Army's recruitment process had been hampered for the past two years by the coronavirus pandemic, and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a difficult decision by expressing concern for the country's youth.

"The recruitment process in the Army has been hampered for the past two years due to the corona pandemic, so Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi ji has taken a sensitive decision, showing concern for the youth, to grant them a two-year age concession from 21 to 23 in the first year of the Agnipath scheme," Shah said in a Hindi tweet.

This decision will benefit a vast number of young people. They will advance in their service to the country and their bright future, he stated, thanks to the Agnipath scheme. He wrote, "I thank @narendramodi ji.'

For the enrolment of soldiers in the Army, Navy, and Air Force under the Agnipath plan, the government extended the upper age limit to 23 years from 21 years for 2022.
