Staff Selection Commission Exam

What is Staff Selection Commission?

The staff for various posts in the different Ministries and Departments of the Government of India and in Subordinate Offices are recruited by the Staff Selection Commission (SSC). It is a Government organization consisting of Chairman, two members and a Secretary-cum-Controller of Examinations. The Estimate committee in the Parliament recommended to set up a Service Selection Commission to conduct examinations to recruit lower categories of posts. Later, in the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms, Government of India appointed a commission called Subordinate Service Commission. Then on 26 September 1977, Subordinate Services Commission was renamed as Staff Selection Commission. Every year Staff Selection Commission conducts the SSC Combined Graduate Level Examination for hiring non-gazetted officers for various government jobs.
