About Indian Forest Service:

Indian Forest Service is one of the Civil Services of India and belongs to the apex All India Services group, with other two All India Services being the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and the Indian Police Service (IPS).

Indian Forest Service was created in 1966 under the All India Services Act 1951. However, this was only a revival of a well organised Imperial Forestry Service which existed during the British Raj from 1865 to 1935. The officers are recruited and trained by the Central Government but their services are placed under various State cadres, and they have the mandate to serve both under the State and Central Governments.

The main mandate of the service is the implementation of the National Forest Policy which aims to ensure environmental stability and maintenance of ecological balance which are vital for sustenance of all life forms, human, animal and plant. IFS officers while in field postings in respective state cadres work for conservation, protection and development of forests and wildlife along with an aim to enhance livelihood opportunities of forest dependent communities of rural and tribal areas.
