Firefighters will get facilities like normal soldiers, insurance of Rs 1 crore, army press conference

New Delhi: Lakhs of youth are opposing the Agneepath scheme of the central government. Protests have turned violent in many parts of the country. Meanwhile, a joint press conference has been organized by the three armies. In which this plan is mentioned. The army said that reform had to happen first. The work started in 1989. We wanted this work to start, we were working continuously on it. In which the age of the commanding officer was reduced, many such changes took place.

“We need a youth profile,” he said at a press conference of the three services , You all know that by 2030, 50% of the people in our country will be below 25 years of age. Does it feel good that the country’s army is protecting 32 years? We try to be young. A lot of people were talked about this, studied abroad. In all countries it was observed that the ages were 26, 27 and 28 years. There are three or four ways to recruit. Anyone can go out anytime. Even in those countries there are challenges that our youth face.

 

The army said that the youth have more enthusiasm and passion. But along with this we also need consciousness. If the soldier will be considered josh, then all the people above the constable come in the category of senses. We want the passion and the senses to be fine. The soldiers of the three services are retiring soon. Thousands of young people are leaving by the age of 35. Today we did not tell what he was doing when he went out. He said that tomorrow there will be a drone war, today not a single person is operating a tank but a drone. It requires different types of people. He is the youth of India because he was born with technology. He comes from the village. If 70 percent of the jawans come from villages, then all decisions have to be taken after seeing them. They have a farm or a small business there. We have not changed in age.

more allowances for firefighters
The army said that there is a service fund scheme in which the contribution of firefighters is Rs 5 lakh, the government will provide Rs 5 lakh by itself. All his allowances will be same. There will be no gap between him and the jawan. Because he will fight with us. There is no way to underestimate this. Martyrs in the army will get insurance of one crore rupees. On which no tax of any kind is to be paid.

 

Firefighters will have to provide proof that they were not involved in any protests. After this there will be police verification. During police verification it will be seen whether the candidate will attend any demonstration or not.

On Agneepath project Lt Gen Bansi Ponnappa said that in the first week of December we will get the first batch of 25000 Agniveers and the second batch will join around February 2023 with 40,000 recruits.

passion for army job
Will increase our recruitment in a few days. It will be up to 90 thousand. We will increase the capacity of the army. The change from 17.7 to 23 years was done because children did not get a chance for two years due to Kovid. Now he will have a chance. Today jawans are getting nothing less than salary allowance. Army job is a passion, it cannot be linked with salary.

Additional secretary DMA, Lt Gen Anil Puri and HR chiefs of the three services were present in the press conference. These include Lieutenant General CP Ponnappa from the Army, Air Officer Personnel Air Marshal SK Jha from the Air Force and Vice Admiral DK Tripathi from the Navy.
