About Meghalaya Public Service Commission: The first Office of the Commission was housed in the building of the Public works Department of Lower Lachumiere, Shillong -793001. Owing to the increase in the works load and staff members of the Commission the premises in the building of the Public work Department were found to be insufficient and very inconvenient. The Commission office was therefore shifted to the 1st floor of the House Shoe Building, Lower Lachumiere, Shillong-793001 in May 1993.

Meghalaya Public Service Commission Selects the candidates for Civil Service Posts based on their performance in the Preliminary Examination, Main examination, and an interview.
