New Delhi, Aug 04:  Sharing information about civil services appointments in the RajyaSabha Thursday, Union Minister of State, Dr Jitendra Singh, said 180 IAS and 200 IPS officers are directly appointed every year through the Civil Service Examination. 
 Dr Jitendra is also Minister Incharge Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT). He informed that the annual intake of IAS officers to Civil Service Exam (CSE) was increased to 180 in 2012. 
Similarly, intake of IPS officers through CSE was increased to 200 from CSE-2020.
Replying to a question in the RajyaSabha, Dr Jitendra Singh said, optimal intake of directly recruited (DR) IAS officers increased on the basis of the recommendations of Baswan Committee. The Committee had also recommended that any number above 180 would a) compromise quality; b) exceed the LBSNAA’s capacity and; c) lead to distortion in the career pyramid of IAS officers, particularly for senior posts in the Government of India.
The Minister stated that as on 01.01.2022, there are 1472 vacancies in IAS and 864 vacancies in IPS in various States. He added that occurrence and filing up of vacancies is a continuous process. It is the endeavour of the Central Government to fill up the vacancies in the cadres. The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) conducts Civil Services Examination (CSE) for filling up vacancies on direct recruitment basis in the category of IAS & IPS every year.
The Minister also informed that to fill up vacancies in the Promotion Quota, Selection Committee Meetings are held by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) with the State Governments.
