Shri Rajnath Singh, who is on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, said in a statement that many youths did not get the opportunity to join the Armed Forces as the recruitment process could not be streamlined for the last 2 years. He said that keeping in mind the future of the youth, the Government has increased the age limit from 21 years to 23 years for the purpose of recruitment of Agniveers for the recruitment process in 2022 on the instructions of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.
