FOREST RESEARCH INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY


Forest Research Institute (FRI), Dehra Dun made a humble beginning from the Forest School established in 1878. Initially named as Imperial Forest Research Institute, FRI came into being in 1906. Later renamed as Forest Research Institute and Colleges, it had a number of Centres located at different places all over the country administering research as well as training of Forest Officers and Forest Rangers. In 1988, on reorganisation of Forestry Research in the Country and creation of Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education (ICFRE), the training and Research Centres were given an independent status. FRI, now one of the institutes under ICFRE, was conferred the status of Deemed University in December 1991, on the recommendation of U.G.C., Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.
