Nearly 200,000 people applied for paid military exemption within two days of its implication, Turkish officials announced yesterday.
The Parliament passed a bill last month for the exemption for men born on January 1, 1994 and before from conscription, in exchange for TL 15,000 ($2,800).
Under the conscription laws, men are obliged to serve 12 months in the military. Applicants to paid military exemption will serve only 21 days.
