Women can be recruited in Agnipath Scheme but the percentage is not fixed.
Vice Admiral Ajendra Bahadur Singh, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief of Western Naval Command, addressed the media and discussed the recently announced Agnipath initiative, allowing women to join the military.
Vice Admiral Singh stated in his lecture that no percentage for women’s entrance into the Armed Forces under the Agnipath plan has been finalised. However, he intimated that a set allotment for women may be conceivable once the plan is functioning. Women’s entrance to the Armed Forces would be entirely dependent on the needs of the army. He recognised that the system has a provision that permits women to be recruited if there is a need.
Earlier, a top navy official praised the Agnipath initiative, calling it a highly appealing option for the nation’s young. He referred to it as “visionary and revolutionary” for the Indian Navy. He stated, citing the Kargil committee findings, that the enlistment of youngsters will raise the profile of the Armed Forces.
