From Chairman’s Desk
Dr. Alind Rastogi, IFS(Retd.)
The Tripura Public Service Commission was constituted in the year 1972 as per provision of Article-315 of the Constitution of India. The duty of the State Public Service Commission, as laid down in Article-320 of the Constitution, is to conduct examinations for appointments to the services of the State.
The Commission is consulted on all matters relating to the methods of recruitment to Civil Services and posts and in making promotions and transfers from one service to another and on the suitability of candidates for such appointments, promotions and transfers.
The Commission is also consulted on all disciplinary matters affecting a person serving under the Government of the State.
The Rules for smooth conduct of the business of the Commission; regulations with respect to its composition, staff, tenure of office of Chairman, Members and staff, conditions of service and the matters in which the Commission is not required to be consulted, made by the Government of the State are
(1) The Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business In Tripura Public Service Commission-2005.
(2) The Tripura Public Service Commission Regulations, 1972 and
(3) The Tripura Public Service Commission (Exemption from consultation) Regulations,1973.
The Tripura Public Service Commission is faithfully following the statutory Rules of Recruitment relating to the Service in question in the matter of selection of candidates. The Commission, at times, in absence of any statutory criteria, evolves its mode of evaluation of merit and selection of candidates, in adjudging the ability of a person for a particular post.
While determining the norms for an examination and the mode of evaluation of merit and selection of candidates, the Commission puts maximum emphasis on transparency. Suggestions for improvement, for making the system more transparent and for rectifications of errors and omissions will be gratefully accepted.
