Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday announced the “Agnipath” scheme, as approved by the Union Cabinet, for recruitment of youth in the armed forces for four years. The process of recruitment will commence in 90 days with a planned intake of about 46,000 young men and women this year. This will be the only form of recruitment of soldiers into the three defence services hereon. However, there are concerns over the scheme, with youth taking to streets and protesting against it. In this video, our managing editor Sujit Nair explains what the scheme is, and what could be its implications.
