Full Form of PSC

PCS or Public Service Commission was established under Article 315 to 323 of the Constitution of India. It is an authorized or central agency authorized to conduct recruitment examinations to select candidates for direct recruitment to various categories of posts under the Government of India.

Public Service Commission (UPSC & SPSC)

The civil servants play an important role in the successful administration of state at different levels. So, their recruitment, training, emoluments, conditions of service, promotion policies, etc. assume importance. For an impartial consideration of these matters relating to civil servants, an independent and expert authority is required. This authority is known as the institution of public service commission. One of the most important features of our Constitution is the inclusion of Public Service Commission at both Union and State levels in the Constitution.

While UPSC and SPSC are constitutional bodies, a joint public service commission is created by an Act of Parliament.
