By IndianMandarins- 05 Aug 2022


New Delhi (05.08.2022): Union Minister Jitendra Singh informed that there are 1,472 vacancies in Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and 864 in Indian Police Service (IPS) in various states as on January 1, 2022.
In order to ensure optimal intake of directly recruited IAS officers, the government has increased their annual intake to 180 through civil services examination (CSE) since CSE-2012, on the basis of the recommendations of Baswan Committee.
“The committee had also recommended that any number above 180 would compromise quality, exceed the LBSNAA's capacity and lead to distortion in the career pyramid of IAS officers, particularly for senior posts in the government of India,” the Minister of State for Personnel told Rajya Sabha.
“As regards IPS officers, intake of IPS through CSE has been increased to 200 from CSE-2020,” the minister said.
