Age and fitness will be among the key criteria for recruitment under the “Tour of Duty” or “Three-Year Short Service” Scheme. The details of the project are being worked out.

Talking about the aim of the project, a source said, “There is a “resurgence of nationalism and patriotism” in the country and the proposal attempts to tap the feelings of the youth who do not want to join the Army as a profession but wish to experience military life for a temporary duration.”

The proposal will be discussed by the top commanders of the army after which it will be taken forward. It is believed that this proposal will also save the cost of the army. as it will save a huge amount of money on gratuity, severance packages, leave encashment and pension.

The Army has also made a comparative study on whether the training costs on people to be recruited under the Tour of Duty would be justified with their subsequent limited employment for only three years. Findings of the study suggest that cumulative approximate cost of pre-commission training, salary and other expenses is nearly between Rs 5.12 crore and Rs 6.83 crore on an officer if he or she is released after 10 and 14 years. However, similar costs for those released after three years would be just Rs 80 lakh to Rs 85 lakh each. The sources said that the savings for only 1,000 soldiers could be Rs 11,000 crore, which can be used for modernisation of the armed forces.

According to the military sources, the Army is also considering to take personnel from the paramilitary and central armed police forces for up to seven years, after which they would be allowed to return to their parent organisations.
