Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday informed the Assembly that there are 48 vacancies in the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and 85 vacancies in the Indian Police Service (IPS) cadres respectively in the State.

In a written reply to a question from Amar Prasad Satpathy (BJD), the Chief Minister said the Centre has been requested for allocation of required number of direct recruit IAS/IPS officers to the State to fill up the vacancies. Regarding the filling up of vacancies in the promotion quota in the IAS cadre, the CM said the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has convened a meeting of the selection committee on August 29 to fill up nine vacancies during 2013.

He said another proposal has been sent to the UPSC to fill up two vacancies in the selection quota of IAS.

The CM said due to unavailability of required eligible State police service officers, the posts in the promotion quota of IPS are lying vacant.
