Commissioner Secretary, Forest, Ecology & Environment, Manoj Kumar Dwivedi, today chaired a meeting to discuss the issues related to cadre review in Forest Department. This was the second meeting convened in this regard during the past one month.
The last cadre review of IFS in J&K was carried out in 2006 and this exercise is normally to be carried out every five years, an official handout said.
The meeting took a comprehensive review of how to overcome shortage of officers and stagnation by restructuring, reorganising and strengthening composition of IFS in the State.
Speaking at the meeting, Dwivedi said the regular cadre review boosts the efficiency and functioning of the department as it helps create fresh career progression avenues for the officers.
He said that genuine issues of the IFS and State Forest Service (SFS) officers would be addressed so that all officers are satisfied by the work load, provided and allotted to them.
He said various demands of SFS are also under consideration and acknowledged that the delay in reviewing the IFS is affecting the career prospects of State officers.
