Delhi: The High Court has rejected appeals that contested the Agnipath programme for armed forces recruitment.
On Monday, the Delhi High Court rejected appeals against the Agnipath initiative. The court stated that there is no justification for interfering with the scheme that the centre introduced in the interest of the nation after taking note of the Agnipath programme. The Agnipath programme, according to the High Court, was started to ensure that the armed forces have better equipment.
The Agnipath initiative provides out guidelines for enlisting young people in the military. These regulations state that applicants must be between 17 and a half and 21 years old, and if accepted, they would serve for a four-year term. 25% of them are eligible for future regular service under the plan. Protests against the idea started after it was revealed in a number of states.
