OPSC Drug Inspector Recruitment 2022 – Apply Online @opsc.gov.in

About Odisha Public Service Commission: The Origin of the Public Service Commission in India is found in the First Dispatch of the Government of India on Indian Constitutional Reforms on March 5, 1919, which referred to the need for setting up some permanent office charged with the regulation of service matters.

This concept of a body intended to be charged primarily with the regulation of service matters found a somewhat more practical shape in the Government of India Act, of 1919. Section 96C of the Act provided for the establishment in India of a Public Service Commission which should “discharge, in regard to recruitment and control of the Public Services in India, such functions as may be assigned thereto by rules made by the Secretary of State in Council”.
