On November 8, the Dagana Territorial Division was inaugurated at Dagapela by Mr. Kencho Dukpa, the Chief Forestry Officer (CFO) of Dagana. It was attended by heads of different organisations, Rabdeys, local government leaders, private institutions and public.
The staff of Dagana Range and Beat Offices welcomed the new CFO with pride and enthusiasm. In his opening remarks, the CFO expressed his gratitude and good hope for public service. The public also expressed their gratitude and happiness to His Majesty The King, Ministry of Agriculture and Forests and DoFPS for creating the Dzongkhag Divisional Forest Office.
Currently, Dagana has two Ranges and two Beat Offices under Tsirang and Sarpang Divisions respectively. The establishment of Territorial Division is the result of the OD exercise in the country carried out by the Royal Government of Bhutan. With inception of the new Division, it is hoped that the delivery of public services would be much efficient and shortened.
