Re: Indian Forest Service Vs Indian Revenue Service

You are looking for the detailed information of Indian Forest Service and the Indian Revenue Service. So I am sharing it with you:

First of all I am sharing the information of Indian Forest Service:

Indian Forest Service (IFS) is one of the Civil Services of India. It 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. As we all know this was only a revival of a well-organized Imperial Forestry Service which existed during the British Raj from 1865 to 1935. The officers are being recruited and trained by the Central Government of India but their services are being placed under various State cadres, and these have the mandate to serve both under the State and Central Governments.


IFS officers are being recruited by the Indian Forest Service examination which is being conducted every year by the Union Public Service Commission. The examination is only open for graduates in any science or engineering field. From several thousands of candidates apply for the examination but only around 85 make it to the final selection list.


Officers are perfectly trained at the Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy situated in Dehradun. After completing training at Indira Gandhi National Forest academy, candidates have to go for the job where he or she is being assigned; they are being posted as Assistant Conservators of Forests.
After four years of working at the junior state they have been given a promotion to the senior state of working.

Now I am providing you the information of Indian Revenue Service:

The Indian Revenue Service is the administrative revenue service of Government of India. It is one of the Central Civil Services. IRS mainly comprises two branches - IRS (Income Tax) and IRS (Customs and Central Excise), which are being controlled by two separate statutory bodies that are Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) and Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC).


There are two streams of recruitment in Indian Revenue Service that are Direct Recruits and Promoted Officers. Direct Recruits are being selected from the prestigious Civil Services Examination conducted by Union Public Service Commission. The promoted officers are being promoted by the several year of service.


IRS Officer Trainees first undergo a 3-month Foundation Course at the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration. IRS officers then proceed to the National Academy of Direct Taxes, Nagpur or the National Academy of Customs, Excise and Narcotics and they undergo a very dynamic training in specialized matters of conventional tax administration (Direct Taxes) along with unarmed combat, weapons and explosives.
