Filling up of the vacancies is a continuous process. It is the endeavor of Central Government to fill up vacant posts expeditiously. The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) conducts Civil Services Examination (CSE) for filling up of vacancies on direct recruitment basis in IAS, IPS and other allied Services every year. Each Cadre Controlling Authority intimates to UPSC the vacancies to be filled up in the respective Services through CSE every year through direct recruitment mode. In Promotion Quota too, prompt actions are being taken for holding of Selection Committee Meetings timely for appointment by Promotion of State Civil Service and State Police Service Officers to IAS and IPS respectively; as well as for appointment by Selection of Non-State Civil Service Officers to IAS.  

 

For IAS, as per the recommendations of Baswan Committee and with the approval of the Competent Authority, 180 IAS officers are recruited through CSE each year since CSE-2012. For IPS, 150 Officers have been recruited through CSE each year since CSE-2009, which has been further increased to 200 since CSE-2020.
