However, there is no role of the Sainik Schools in the implementation of the Agnipath scheme, Bhatt said in a written reply to Arun Kumar Sagar and others in the Lok Sabha on Thursday.

The Union government has not formulated any scheme for mandatory service of youth in the Indian Armed Forces, the minister said.
