Patna: Bihar government will soon fill
vacancies of 136 posts of foresters and 474 posts of forest
guards, state Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said
today.

The state government is framing rules for the services
of foresters and forest guards and the same will be finalised
over the next four months before commencement of the
recruitment process for foresters and forest guards after
obtaining cabinet approval, he said in the legislative
assembly in reply to a question by JD(U) MLA Izhar Ahmed.

Modi, who also holds the forest and environment
department, said that in all 624 posts of rangers, foresters
and forest guards were vacant in Bihar at present.

There is difficulty in inspection of forest and
wildlife in the state due to shortage of manpower at the hands
of the forest and environment department, he said.
