    Hi
    There is no specific number of seats decided by the upsc for the recruitment process. The number of seats is dependant on the number of people getting retired from the upsc in that particular year.
    This is the reason there is no specific number of vacancies every year. but a rough estimation shows that every year, the number of vacancies are in between 800-1000

    The number of vacancies and the number of seats filled are different every year.Most of the times,many vacancies are not filled as some candidates does not join some of the services and they again prepare for better services as per their preference.In the year 2012,the tentative number of vacancies were nearly 1050.It varies every year depending upon the requirement and vacant posts in each of the services.
