The institutionof Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission is present at Constitutional level for selection on various posts of state Civil Services/allied services and other so many services but owing to increased pressure on its working, difficulty was found regarding selection on group 'C'posts. In near past, selection on Group 'C'posts was being done under the direct supervision of the State Government but Head of the Departmentshad to devote much time for the selection on Group 'C'posts which was severely affecting Government works as well as the works of public interest. Due to all these reasons the State Government decided to establish an independentUttar Pradesh Subordinate Services Selection Commissionconsisting of Chairperson and Members similar to that of Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission for timely selection of able, worthy, hardworking personnel for appointment on certain Group 'C'posts below Group 'B'posts ensuring the quality of selection, its impartiality and transparency in selection in administrative departments of the state including posts in the Civil Secretariat and also to all Group 'C'posts in a Board or a Corporation or any other statuary body established by or controlled by the State Government. The present Uttar Pradesh Subordinate Services Selection Commission constituted under the provision of the U.P. Subordinate Services Selection Commission Act 2014.
