Publicly, Indian military officers are not tired of praising the Agnipath scheme. They are calling this is beneficial for the youths for getting employment Armed Forces to have a young blood infusion and the society to have discipline citizens, but some media have also looked at many more aspects of this scheme. It has been cast and some new things have also come out in it, broadly the main objective of Agnipath scheme is to attract youth in the army so that they can reduce the average age of the armed force, at present this age is 32 years. Which defence forces want to bring down to the level of 26 years in a span of 5-6 years? The second main thing is that today's youth is technology savvy. So they will not have any problem in adopting new technology. The tour of duty has been kept only for 4 years. After 4 years the society should get a patriotic disciplined citizen. Has the Agnipath scheme really been brought with these objectives or are there some other hidden reasons in this which the government does not want to make public?
