  • Regimental loyalty will be affected- No changes will be made in the regimental system by the Government of India. The regimental system will be strengthened by the operation of this scheme because the best Agni Veer will come here selectively.
  • The working capacity of the military forces will be affected- In most countries around the World the citizens of the country are recruited into the military forces for a short period.
