  • Slide 3 - Indian Forest Service
  • Slide 4 - The Beginning…. During the year 1864 the then British India Government started the Imperial Forest Department Dr. Dietrich Brandis, a German Forest officer posted as Inspector General of Forests in 1866. Imperial Forest Service was constituted in 1867 to mange the varied natural resources and to organize the affairs of the Imperial Forest Department,
  • Slide 5 - Initial Training…. The Imperial Forest Service Officers were trained from 1867 to 1885 in France (Nancy School) and Germany (Hanover). From 1885 to 1905 they were trained at Cooper's Hill, London From 1905 to 1926 - training at the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh
  • Slide 6 - FRI…. The Imperial Forest Research Institute, Dehra Dun, was established in 1906. FRI had trained IFS officers from 1927 to 1932 – No demand for training after that The subject of "Forestry" which was managed by the Federal Government was transferred to the "Provincial List“ - 1935 Recruitment to the Imperial Forest Service -discontinued.
  • Slide 7 - IFS Officers Trained (1867-1932)
  • Slide 8 - Training at IFC… The Indian Forest College (IFC) was established in the year 1938 at Dehra Dun Officers recruited to the Superior Forest Service by different provinces/states were trained there - thus retaining the all India character of the service.
  • Slide 9 - Independent India…. 1947 - the princely states merged with the parent State Provinces, resulting in steep increase in Forest area in many of the provinces. It was challenging to reorganize the services due to entry of ex-princely States personnel into the Forest Services of parent province. Most of the personnel of the Indian Forest Service of British Origin left India with the remaining opting for premature retirement by 1949.
  • Slide 10 - Independent India…. Some of the officers were retained in Pakistan The main brunt of managing the forests of India was left to the handful of Indian Forest Service Officers of Indian origin and those in the Superior State Forest Service of different States. The Indian Forest Service, was constituted in the year 1966 under the All India Services Act, 1951 by the Government of India. Serving members of the State Forest Service were inducted into IFS and designated as "Initial Recruits"
  • Slide 11 - Changing Mandate of the Forest Service Scientific management of the forests to exploit it on a sustained basis for primarily timber products. - 1938 Large tracts of the forest were brought under state control through the process of reservation under the Indian Forest Act,1927 Forestry shifted to the concurrent list in 1977- Federal Government plays an important role - at the policy level in the management of the Indian forests.
  • Slide 12 - Shift from Production Forestry..1976 National Commission on Agriculture –Sustained yield to be in tandem with biomass needs of the people Increase extension activities through social forestry Equal thrust to habitat management in protected area and conserving the biodiversity of the land. Species Conservation approach People’s Participation
  • Slide 13 - Composition - 3034 IFS Officers Direct Recruits: 66.33 per cent of the cadre strength of IFS is filled by Direct Recruitment done through the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) National level competitive examination open to graduates with science background. Successful candidates have to appear for a personality test, a walking test – 25 km / 14 km and a standard medical fitness test. Promotees: 33.33 per cent of the cadre strength of the service to be filled from State Forest Service.
  • Slide 14 - “Mens Sana In Corpore Sano” Sound Mind In a Sound Body MOTTO OF INDIAN FOREST SERVICE
  • Slide 15 - Latin - from Satire X of the Roman poet Juvenal  It is to be prayed that the mind be sound in a sound body. Ask for a brave soul that lacks the fear of death, which places the length of life last among nature’s blessings, which is able to bear whatever kind of sufferings, does not know anger, lusts for nothing and believes the hardships and savage labors of Hercules better than the satisfactions, feasts, and feather bed of an Eastern King. I will reveal what you are able to give yourself; For certain, the one footpath of a tranquil life lies through virtue. Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mens_sana_in_corpore_sano
  • Slide 16 - For IFS Officers – What It means "mens sana in corpore sano" is a sharp call for personal perfection; Finding limits and moving beyond them; Bash on Regardless - Attitude Never Give Up or Give In - Orientation Developing a powerful and beautiful personal presence Leaving behind a Green Handprint.

Such investment is indeed fully justified considering the contribution of forests in maintaining essential ecological processes and life support systems and in preserving genetic diversity. Forests should not be looked upon as a source of revenue. Forests are a renewable natural resource. They are a national asset to be protected and enhanced for the well-being of the people and the Nation.
  • Slide 20 - Scientific Management through Working Plans Instruments for state forest departments for scientific forest management.   Prepared in a phased manner all over the country.
