The Working Plan exercise of the 2010-2012 Batch of IFS Probationers was conducted from 19th March to 31st March, 2012. The Academy attaches much importance to the Working Plan exercise which represents the convergence of all the technical input imparted in the preceding year. For the purpose, probationers tented in the forest of the Kalsi Soil Conservation Division. In the Course of the exercise probationers traversed the length and breadth of the division, laid sample plots, carried out enumerations, recorded measurements and impressions on the terrain, soil, vegetation, human and livestock disturbance, weed infestation etc. A Socio-economic survey in the surrounding villages was also done to gauge dependence on forest. Probationers were also acquainted with the use of GIS & Remote Sensing and GPS in the formulation of Working Plan.
