Supreme Court transfers pleas challenging Agnipath scheme to Delhi HC

The Supreme Court on Tuesday transferred the petitions challenging the Agnipath military recruitment scheme – to the Delhi High Court. The top court said it felt “desirable and proper” to have the view of the Delhi HC, which is already hearing petitions on the scheme.

The top court has further ordered that any similar petitions that are currently challenging the scheme in the high courts of Kerala, Patna, Punjab, Haryana, and Uttarakhand may be filed as intervention applications before the Delhi High Court, or the petitioners may request that their arguments be transferred to Delhi.

The Supreme Court further ruled that identical procedure will be followed in any future high court petitions filed about the plan.

“In our judgement, multiplicity of writ petitions on the topic will not be desirable or proper,” the three-judge panel of Dhananjaya Y. Chandrachud, Surya Kant, and AS Bopanna stated. The court also explored the option of bringing all petitions to the Supreme Court but said, “Adopting such a course would deprive us of the view of the high courts.”

The petitioners said that the matter includes a problem that affects all of India and that the Supreme Court should take it into consideration. However, the bench said that just because a problem is “pan-Indian,” that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be heard by many high courts. The court was considering three PILs submitted by Ravindra Singh Shekhawat, ML Sharma, and Harsh Ajay Singh.

The Supreme Court ordered the Center to provide a copy of its order to the Registrar (Judicial) of all high courts with ongoing cases of a similar nature so that the Chief Justices of those high courts may issue the orders required by the SC ruling.

The centre introduced the short-term recruitment programme in the army, navy, and air force last month with the goal of lowering the average age of the military. “The programme has been created to enable a young-looking Armed Forces. By luring in new talent from the society who are more in tune with current technology trends and reinvesting trained, disciplined, and motivated manpower into the society, it will give the opportunity to the youth who may be eager to don the uniform. Regarding the military, it will increase their youthful appearance “The government issued a statement.

“To usher in a new era in the Human Resource policy of the three Services, the government has introduced this significant defence policy reform. The policy, which takes effect immediately, will now control how the three services are enrolled “It was ad. The age range of 17.5 to 21 years is being recruited for a four-year term.

However, the scheme’s introduction had sparked widespread, violent protests. The initiative, which came as a measure after recruitments were halted for two years due to the pandemic, was criticised by the opposition as being too late and too little.
