Stamp Information : The first service commission was set up in India in October, 1926. Under the provisions of the Government of India Act 1935, the Public Service Commission at the Cntre became the Federal Public Service Commission and Commissions were also set up for the Provinces. With the inauguration of the Republic in January 1950 the Federal Public Service Commission became the Union Public Service Commission. The Union and the State Public Service Commissions were set up as autonomous bodies entrusted with the task of conducting examinations and recruitment and advising the Government on all matters concerning the civil servants. Dr. Rajendra Prasad in his Assembly on November 26, 1949 stated: Our Constitution has devised certain independant agencies to deal with particular matters. Thus it has provided for Public Service Commissions both for the Union and for the States and placed such Commissions on an independent footings so that tey may discharge their duties without being influenced by the Executives. One of the things against which we have to guard is that there should be no room as far as it is humanly possible for jobbery, nepotism and favouritism. I Think the provisions which we have introduced into our Constitution will be very helpful in this direction. To commemorate the past achievements and to discus in a purposeful manner the steps to be taken to ensure objective and speedly selections and at the same time meet the aspirations of the large number of educated youngmen, a conference of Chairman of Public Service Commission was held on November 15 and 16, 1976. The basic plicy of the Public Service Commission in making selections of candidates for appointment to various posts inone of impartiality and objectivity, ensuring equal opportinity to all citizens to complete for the selections. The Indian Posts and Telegraphs Department is privileged to issue a commemorative stamp on Union Public Service Commission.
