Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Tuesday signed orders transferring 200 forest officers, right from the rank of Chief Conservator of Forests to the ground level Beat Officers. It may be recalled that the Chief Minister recently initiated a crackdown on illegal felling of trees, timber smuggling and wildlife poaching in the State, sending Forest Department officials scrambling to catch those committing forest offences.

As per the Chief Minister’s instructions, officials committed to forest protection, afforestation have now been posted in important and vulnerable areas. As many as 21 senior officers are among those who have been transferred to turn Chief Minister’s ‘Jungle Bacaho-Jungle Badhao’ slogan a reality.

In an apparent move that is part of the crackdown on forest crimes in erstwhile Adilabad district, Conservator of Forests (CF) and Field Director of Project Tiger (FDPT) at Amrabad Tiger Reserve, CP Vinod Kumar, has been posted as CF and FDPT at Kawal Tiger Reserve in place of C Saravanan, who has been posted as Conservator of Medak district. Similarly, Deputy Conservator of Forests (DCF) (HQ) Shivani Dogra who had previously worked as the curator of Nehru Zoological Park, has now been posted as the Mancherial District Forest Officer (DFO), while Nizamabad DFO, VSNV Prasad will be new DFO of Nirmal district. While DCF M Nagabhushnam who was the Forest Development Officer (Wildlife Management) at Kinnerasani has been posted as FDO Mancherial, ACF Raja Ramana Reddy from the department headquarters has been posted as FDO at Kagaznagar in Kumram Bheem-Asifabad district.
