Proposal to join Indian Army for Energetic Civilians/Youngers in force for 3 years

Indian Army in a transnational move, the Indian Army is considering a proposal to allow for whole civilians including young working professionals, to join the force for a three-year tenure as officers and other ranks in the Indian Army.
Top military sources said the "game-changing" proposal is being examined by top commanders of the Indian Army and that its main aim is to bring people closer to the 13 lakh-strong force by giving them an opportunity to experience military life.
Even, though the proposal is yet to be implemented by the Indian Army, it has impressed Mahindra group chief Anand Mahindra.

I definitely think military training will be an added advantage for ToD graduates as they enter the workplace. In fact, considering the rigid standards of selection and training in the Indian Army, Anand Mahindra says the Mahindra Group will be happy to consider their candidature.

PTI reported recently, The cumulative approximate cost of pre-commission training salary and other expenses is nearly Rs 5.12 crore and Rs 6.83 crore on an officer if he or she is released after 10 and 14 years, respectively. However, a similar cost for this ToD released after three years would be just Rs 80 lakh to Rs 85 lakh each. Since approximately 50 percent to 60 percent of the Short Service Commissioned Officers are granted a permanent commission, the cost of their retention until attaining 54 years of age is too high in the Indian Army.

Now, Nation savings for only 1,000 jawans could be Rs 11,000 crore, which could then be utilized for the much-needed modernization of the Indian armed forces. ToD officer or soldier after completing one year of training and three years of Tour of Duty is likely to display visible improvement in self-confidence, teamwork, responsibility, initiative, stress management, innovation, and social skills, according to a military officer.

In an interaction with the media on 14 May 2020, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Gen Bipin Rawat had said the Tour of Duty concept is still at a nascent stage and under the Indian Army chief’s consideration. If it works out, it’s good, he said but added that its viability needs to be studied carefully.

ThePrint reported earlier, the Tour of Duty is only for three-four years, which also includes a training period. While the Indian Army is keenly studying this, and the CDS is looking at making the SSC more attractive shortly.
