Earlier, the armed forces have decided that the candidates falling in the age group of 17½ - 21 years are eligible to apply for Aginveer recruitment, which was later on revised to 17½ - 23 years (applicable only for Agniveer 2022 batch). Granting a one-time waiver, the Union government declared that the Agniveer upper age limit for recruitments via Agnipath Scheme has been extended to 23 years from 21 years.
