About Himachal Pradesh Public Service Commission

Himachal Pradesh achieved statehood on January 25, 1971. Prior to this, the responsibilities of the Public Service Commission for civil services and posts related to the affairs of the Union Territory of Himachal Pradesh were handled by the Union Public Service Commission as per Article 315 of the Constitution of India. It was necessary for the newly formed state to have its own Public Service Commission. However, since the establishment of a State Public Service Commission could only occur simultaneously with the attainment of statehood, the Union Public Service Commission, upon request from the Governor of Himachal Pradesh and with the approval of the President of India, agreed to fulfill the state’s needs until the establishment of a dedicated Public Service Commission or for a maximum period of three months from January 25, 1971, whichever came earlier.
