Agnipath recruitment: Air Force receives over 7.4 lakh applications, the highest ever

The registration process began on June 24 amid widespread and violent protests against the new short-term recruitment scheme for the armed forces. 

The Indian Air Force has received record-breaking 7,49,899 applications under the new defence recruitment scheme Agnipath.

The Air Force in a tweet said that the process of online registration under the Agnipath scheme has been completed and it has received 7,49,899 applications, highest in any recruitment cycle. Previous record was 6,31,528.

The registration process began on June 24 amid widespread and violent protests against the new short-term recruitment scheme for the armed forces.

Under the Agnipath scheme, those aged between 17-and-a-half and 21 years would be inducted into the armed forces for a four-year tenure and 25 per cent of them will be inducted for regular service subsequently.

The government had, on June 16, increased the upper-age limit for recruitment under the scheme to 23 years from 21 for the year 2022 to accomodate those aspirants who lost 2 years because of Covid-19 as no recruitment was done during that time.
