Therefore, each year seats remain vacant for Baluchistan, Sindh, KPK, and women seats of all provinces including Punjab. Therefore, these seats are carried forward for next year and the dilemma remains same. Therefore, the incumbent government of PTI has decided to take CSS exam for vacant positions for Sindh which has 41 vacant seats for Urban domiciles candidates, while, Baluchistan has 49 vacant seats. KPK has 16 vacant seats this for CSS 2020. The women quota has 38 vacant seats across Pakistan in all provinces including Federal Capital Islamabad and Azad Jammu& Kashmir.
