Indian Forest Service (IFS) Officers after being selected by the UPSC, undergo a 16-months training at Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy (IGNFA), Dehradun.

People are generally curious about the kind of training IFS probationers undergo at IGNFA. In an exclusive interview with Indian Masterminds, Arushi Mishra, a 2020-batch IFS officer, shared about her life and experience at Forest Academy, Dehradun. She is presently posted as the Director and DFO, National Chambal Sanctuary, Agra. She says everything learned at IGNFA is something one needs to go back to while solving problems in the present and future.
