Similarly, a letter is getting viral on social media from the defence ministry the letter reads, “I am directed to refer to this Ministry’s letter no. F.No. 9 (11/2027/F dated 17 June 2022, on the subject sited above and to say that the ORs attested after 01 January 2013 and not promoted to the substantive rank of Naik or equivalent on 01 July 2022 are to be kept under the new Agnipath Scheme….”
