The Delhi High Court on Wednesday said that it will hear the batch of matters challenging the Central government's Agnipath scheme on August 25. .A division bench of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad clubbed all the petitions relating to the scheme which proposes to induct youth into the Army for four years..The Delhi High Court is seized of three matters related to the Agnipath scheme or recruitment into the armed forces as whole. While one petition is by shortlisted Airmen in the Indian Air Force (IAF) demanding that their recruitment should be done as per the 2019 notification, the other petition is in form of a public interest litigation (PIL) petition challenging the Indian Navy’s recruitment process and shortlisting criteria of Person Below Officer Rank (PBORs).A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has also been filed seeking directions to the Central government to resume all recruitment processes in the defence forces which were cancelled due to the introduction of the Agnipath scheme. This petition is by a candidate who had cleared the physical and medical exams and got the admit card for the written exam as well. But the recruitment process was then cancelled due to the introduction of the new scheme. .As the Supreme Court transferred the petitions listed before itself as well as various High Courts across the country to Delhi, more petitions are now likely to come up before Delhi High Court.
