STATE PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION
- TAMILNADU -
In the year 1923, the British government established a Public Service Commission to examine the salary structure of the Indian Civil servants.
Madras presidency was the first province in India to establish their own service commission (The Madras Service Commission) under an Act of the Madras Legislature in 1929. After the reorganization of the states in 1957, several state-level commissions were constituted. The Madras Service Commission became the Madras Public Commission with headquarters at Madras in the year 1957. During 1970, when the name of the state was changed to Tamil Nadu, the Madras Public Service Commission was renamed as the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC).
