An Army recruitment rally under the Agnipath Scheme for candidates from Pune and five other districts of Maharashtra will be conducted at Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth at Rahuri in Ahmednagar between August 23 and September 11.

Earlier in June, the Ministry of Defence had announced its new ‘Agnipath’ initiative for recruitment of soldiers for the three services. Under this defence recruitment reform, which was cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Security, soldiers will be recruited annually. While the appointment is for four years, of the total annual recruits, around 25 per cent of each batch of Agniveers will be enrolled in the regular cadre of the Armed forces and would be required to serve an engagement period of 15 years.

The recruitment rally in Ahmednagar is being conducted for Agniveer General Duty, Agniveer Technical, Agniveer Clerk and Store Keeper Technical and Agniveer Tradesman categories. The candidates from Pune, Beed, Ahmednagar, Latur, Osmanabad and Solapur districts are eligible for the rally, said a press statement issued by the Army through the Defence PRO, Pune.

“For the process, the candidates are required to register and apply online on the Indian Army website http://www.joinindianarmy.nic.in. Admit cards of candidates who register themselves online will be posted on their registered email addresses. Candidates are advised to go through the eligibility criteria in a careful manner. Candidates enrolled in the recruitment rally will be governed by the terms and conditions of the Agnipath Recruitment Scheme. They will be enrolled for a period of four years to serve the nation.” said the statement.
