The MHA had determined eight vacancies for 2010, three for 2011, eight for 2012 and nine for 2013.

The selection committee scrutinizes the records/ ACRs and other details of local officers thoroughly and as per the provisions of Regulation 5(4) of the promotions Regulations.
According to rules, the committee records its recommendations in the shape of ‘Minutes’ which are signed by each member and the chairperson.
These minutes are first sent to the State government concerned which in turn forward these to the central Government after its concurrence. The central Government also examines the minutes and conveys its concurrence to the UPSC. Finally, these are placed before the Commission. The Commission conveys its approval to the Central Government which is the cadre controlling authority for the Indian Police Service.
