Good News For Agniveer Soldiers!!! Central Govt. Declares Reservation For Them: The central government has introduced an Agniveer scheme to recruit soldiers for the Army, Navy, and Air force under a contract basis. Many candidates registered for this program and the recruitment process is on-going. Recently the central government has announced a reservation for Ex-Agniveer soldiers.
This announcement is made by the Ministry of Home Affairs after amending the CISF act 1968. According to their report, there is a reservation of 10% for Ex-Agniveer soldiers in Central Industry Security Force (CISF) recruitment. The notification also states that there is an age relaxation of 5 years for Ex-Agniveers from the first batch and 3 years age relaxation for other batch soldiers.
The Ex-Aginiveer soldiers are also exempted from the physical efficiency test. This is a piece of happy news for them. Last week the government also announced the reservation for Ex-Agniveers in Border Security Force (BSF) recruitment.
