There is a difference in approved edits and actual edits in my profile

Editor Stats shows

Mudit Kapil had 503 edit suggestions approved, and 67 edit suggestions rejected

But Badge progress shows 452 edit suggestions approved so there is a total difference of 51 approved edits in both the stats.

Does it mean that 51 edited posts has been deleted from the site?

Why there is a difference in counts in Editor Stats and Badge progress?

    The badge description says "excludes deleted and tag edits". That probably makes up the difference right there.

The description for the badge says this:

(excluding.. deleted posts and tag edits).

That is probably making the difference for you.

    Perhaps caching also has an effect, since counts for badges are updated with cron jobs
