Rs.1 Lakh Incentive for Joining the Armed Forces!

by Uday Kumar on June 30, 2012

The Goa government has declared Rs 1 lakh as incentive to encourage Goan youth to join the Armed forces.

Officials said that the state government has formulated a monetary incentive scheme to making joining armed forces attractive. In the past several Goans were in the armed forces and one – Sunit Rodrigues – became the chief of Indian army long ago. But in the last few years, the number of Goan youth taking up the service, has come down drastically, source said.

Under the scheme Rs.1,00,000/- will be provided to the Goan youth who is commissioned in the armed forces through Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) as a permanent commissioned officer.

Similarly Rs.50,000/- will be given as incentive to the Goan youth who is commissioned in the armed forces through UPSC as short service commissioned officer and Rs.25,000/- to those who join in any rank below commissioned officer.

The official also stated that this scheme is also applicable to the Goan youth who is commissioned in the armed forces through NCC entry schemes.

Anybody from Goa here? Hope other state governments like Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Pondicherry and Adaman and Nicobar also do the same, since the people joining the Armed Forces as Officers from these states is very low!
