  1. Don’t want four years job Candidates say that they work hard to join the armed forces. Four years of duty also includes holidays and training, so he does not want to join the army for a few days. He says, ‘Earlier, there was no recruitment in the army for three years. Now only four years job scheme has been introduced and this is a fraud with us. According to what will be the job of 4 years because if there will be 8 months training and 6 months leave, then what will we protect the country in about 3 years. This decision has to be withdrawn.
  2. Where will you go after four years? At the same time, a section says that after working so hard, they will be recruited in the army. After this, you will get a job for four years. Then what will happen after four years? There is no plan for what we will do after four years. It’s just like cheering for four years.
  3. Complaint of cancellation of recruitment- It is being told that due to Kovid, the restoration of the army was also affected. Recruitment has not been completed for the last two-three and now they are being canceled. Those who have passed due to this, have got medical, they have a problem with it. Actually, earlier they were getting jobs forever and now they are getting jobs for only four. According to reports, in December 2019, more than one lakh youths of Agra division had applied for army recruitment. Army Recruitment Rally was held in Agra in February 2021 and more than 3300 youth were issued notice to appear in the examination on 25 April 2021. But it was canceled before the exam.
  4. Money is also less At the same time, the question of many people is also about money. Actually, in this, the salary of Agniveers will be 30 thousand rupees and out of that only 21 thousand rupees will come in their hands. That’s why people are considering this salary as low, because many people say that if the salary is for four years, then at least the money should be more.
  5. The number of days of hard work, less service than People believe that once in the army, people work hard for many years. Along with studies, work hard for your body. They say that they are preparing for more time than the number of years they will serve in the army. That is, he has been preparing for more than 4 years and if he gets a job then he will be able to do it only for 4 years. That is, service for longer than their hard work time.
