First know what Anand Mahindra said?
Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra tweeted, “I am deeply saddened and disappointed by the kind of violence that is taking place after the announcement of the Agneepath scheme. Last year when the scheme was being considered, I had said that the discipline and skill that Agniveer will get will definitely make him employable. He further wrote that Mahindra Group will provide employment opportunities to such trained and capable youth.

As soon as Anand Mahindra tweeted about giving jobs to Agniveers, users started asking him all kinds of questions. A similar question was asked by a user named Sandeep Kumar. Sandeep asked- In which position will Agniveers be given jobs in Mahindra Group?
Responding to this, Anand Mahindra wrote, ‘There are immense employment opportunities for Agniveers in the corporate sector. Young people equipped with leadership ability, teamwork and physical prowess will work to propel our industry forward. These youths will provide us industry solutions, playing a key role in areas ranging from operations to management and supply chain management.
What is Agniveer Yojana?
Under the ‘Agneepath Recruitment Scheme’, the youth will get an opportunity to join the army for a period of four years. The age limit for recruitment has been fixed from 17 and a half years to 21 years. However, this year, two years relaxation has been given to the youth in the age limit. That means youth up to 23 years of age will be able to participate in the recruitment to be held in 2022. At the end of four years, 75 per cent of the soldiers will be relieved of duty. A maximum of 25 percent of the willing jawans will get a chance to serve in the army even further. This will happen when there are vacancies. The jawans who will be released from service will get preference in the Armed Forces and other government jobs.
According to the new rule, six months training will be given to the recruited youth. For this 10th or 12th pass students can apply. 10th pass jawans will also be made 12th during the service period. These youths will be called Agniveers. If any Agniveer dies during the service of the country, then an amount of more than one crore including service fund will be given along with interest.
Apart from this, the salary of the remaining job will also be given. If a soldier becomes disabled while on duty, then he will be given an amount of up to Rs 44 lakh and the salary of the remaining job will also be given. After four years of service, the youth will be given a service fund package. Which will be Rs 11.71 lakh. The scheme will start after 90 days. This year 46 thousand Agniveers will be recruited.
