The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) conducts Direct Recruitment (through Structured Examination and Direct Recruitment by Selection) to various Group ‘A’ and Group ‘B’ (Gazetted) posts based on the number of vacancies reported by the Ministries/ Departments/ Union Territories. The vacancies reported and recommendations made by the Commission during the last five years are as follows:
Details of vacancies reported and candidates recommended by the UPSC during the last five years through Structured Examination
Details of vacancies reported and candidates recommended by the UPSC during the last five years through Direct Recruitment by Selection
*Number of candidates recommended does not exactly correspond to the vacancies reported in that particular year as recruitment process was spilled over to next year in some cases.
There has been decline in vacancies reported from 2016-17 which led to corresponding decline in number of candidates recommended by the Commission.
This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
