Central Government Moves Caveat in Supreme Court: “Hear Us Before Making Decision on Challenge”[Agnipath Scheme]

The Indian Army, Indian Navy, and Indian Air Force have recently implemented; the Agnipath Recruitment Scheme, which raised concerns among; the Central Government that;  applications will be filed opposing it. In the event that; a petition is filed against them; a party may file a caveat asking the; court to hear their; argument before making a judgment.

Whereas, to date, three petitions filed in this case challenging the Agnipath Recruitment Scheme. In the most recent argument; the Union of India is being urged to; reexamine the “Agnipath” Scheme by way of its Ministries and Department of Military Affairs.

The petition also asks for guidance on how to set up a committee to advise; the Ministry of Defence’s Department of Military Affairs and to solicit suggestions from parties involved in the; job-seeking military personnel and retired Army officers for changes to the Agnipath Program that; would give 75% of Agniveers post-retirement employment opportunities.

Additionally, another petition submitted by Attorney ML Sharma challenges the constitutionality of the 2022 Agnipath Scheme and claims that; it has caused substantial harm to Indian citizens, including the Indian army.

It asserts that; the government implemented the “Agnipath Scheme” for hiring in all three-armed forces divisions without receiving consent from; the parliament and without publishing a notice in the gazette. While the argument made in the lawsuit by; attorney Vishal Tiwari claims that; the recently implemented Agnipath Scheme by the; Central Government has a significant impact on the nation’s population, leading to increased vandalism and protests that; have severely damaged public property and commodities.

The argument reads, “The government in Uttar Pradesh recently destroyed several Muslims’ homes on the grounds that; they had taken part in the rioting. Numerous retired Supreme Court justices, High Court judges, attorneys, and law-abiding individuals have denounced the; Uttar Pradesh government’s actions.”
