In a move aimed at reassuring youth who want to join the army of their future, the Union home ministry has announced that there will be 10% reservation in CISF for those Agniveers who will not be absorbed in the army. The BSF has already announced a similar move. As per the Agniveer scheme for entry into the army, 75% of those who join the army will be retired after 4 years, while 25% will be absorbed into the army as regular soldiers. Many youth have been apprehensive about what options they will have for their future once they are released from the army after four years of service.
