Asserting that forests are essential for the social, cultural and economic development, President Droupadi Murmu has asked Indian Forest Service officers to play an effective role in protecting them from illegal activities.

Addressing probationers of the IFS, who had called on her at the Rashtrapati Bhavan , Murmu said India is giving special attention to the rights of forest dwelling communities.

“The symbiotic relationship of the forest dwellers including tribal communities, with the forests is now widely recognised and factored in our development choices. It is responsibility of Indian Forest Service officers to make these communities aware of their rights and duties towards conservation and protection of bio-diversity,” she said.
