    Most of the youth who want to join the Army are coming from poor rural backgrounds. They have limited education, what little education they received did not prepare them to compete against the millions of urban youth with college degrees. Since manufacturing industry is non-existent in these areas, (mainly due to years of conflict and difficult geography) the chances of finding un-skilled labor is remote.

    So, the options for them are either emigrate to an urban center and look for un-skilled jobs there or join the agricultural labor force. Both of these are uncertain in terms of job availability, risky in terms of income stream and offer very little material rewards beyond basic survival.

    Compared to this, the Army offers a stable profession, more material comfort (yes! true) and definitely better financial compensation.

    Well, most of the J&K youths living in the UK are from the rich families who either ran away in the very beginning and never associate themselves with the sub-continents anyway or they are the brain-washed jihadi-type who think an independant state of Kashmir is possible (with Pakistan and China on two sides). You cannot compare those a-holes with the average J&K youth in India.

    The US Army makes a big deal about giving recruits money for college. Too big a deal, in my opinion, because it detracts from a recruit's understanding of the Army's primary mission. Just my opinion, but I know there was a problem with Army Reservists who were very surprised by being mobilized for Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

    I think Ray sir can give you an exact answer about this.

    But the below article also gives a partial glimpse of facilities provided to jawans (soldier) and his life in army.

    True, IA needs to change its recruitment policies. Currently far more recruitment happens in some regions when compared to others.
    The news report is giving an impression as if the recruitment happened in the Valley.

    Frankly I don't mind where they recruit from as long as they are doing their job correctly.

    If some people are over represented in Army the others are over represented in the Research organisations like HAL,DRDO,ISRO etc...

    I think it complements each other.

    Those institutions are not part of armed forces.

    PS:If a coup happens who would matter more, the ones with guns or the ones with lab instruments?:D

    What works in the USA does not work in India - in the USA higher education is expensive - so the army can use it as a possible incentive. In India higher education is essentially cheap/ free - so that is not an incentive. On the other hand, a career in US Army is probably too much for an average american - they want short shifts and then move onto civvy life with a better lifestyle. In India the rural civilian lifestyle is not as good as the military lifestyle, so people like to make a career out of the Army.

    I know...but the martial race is very well entrenched in the Army and is not going any time soon...

    BTW if a coup happens and if something negative occcurs we can always launch the missiles which are built here...
