IFS Job Profile : A bird’s eye view for an aspirant

Many Aspirants asked me to write a post on "What" is the exact Job Profile of an IFS officer, the Scope of his Work, the Oppurtunities etc., My Seniors have put in some effort in writing a blog post on the same topic. So i take the liberty of Copy-Pasting the same in the interest of the future aspirants, with due acknowledgment to 2014 batch of IFS.

Introduction
Indian Forest Service (IFS) is amongst the most prestigious services of our country and is one of the three All India Services, the other two being Indian Administrative Service and Indian Police Service. It was constituted in the year 1966 under the All India Services Act, 1951 by the Government of India for scientific management of its forests. Prior to that, the British had constituted Imperial Forest Service in 1867 which functioned under the Federal Government until ‘Forestry’ was transferred to the “Provincial List” by the Government of India Act, 1935, and subsequent recruitment to the Imperial Forest Service were discontinued.
The main mandate of the service is the implementation of the National Forest Policy which envisages scientific management of forests and to exploit them on a sustained basis for primary timber products, among other things. Since 1935, the management of the forests remained in the hands of the Provincial Governments and even today the Forest Departments are managing the forests of the country under the respective State Governments.

Why IFS?
