      Kerala PSC Jobs: Brief History of Kerala Public Service Commission

      In the erstwhile Travancore state candidates for various categories of Government jobs were selected by a Public Service Commissioner. The first such commissioner was Mr. G.D. Nokes who was appointed on 14 June 1936. On the other hand a Staff Selection Board existed in Cochin which selected candidates for lower posts. Under an Act of the State Legislature, the Cochin Public Service Commission was established with three-members.

      The Office of the Public Service Commissioner, Travancore and the Cochin Public Service Commisssion continued to function till the integration of Travancore and Cochin States. The two Princely States of Travancore and Cochin amalgamated and the Travancore-Cochin State was formed on 1 July 1949. Post integration of the princely states, a Public Service Commission for the State of Travancore-Cochin was constituted by an Ordinance. The Commission comprised of two members and the Chairman. The Government of India Act, 1935 governed the functions of the Travancore-Cochin Public Service Commission.

      The Travancore-Cochin Public Service Commission continued to function under the Constitutional Provisions after the Indian Constitution was adopted on 26 January 1950.

      Consequent to the Re-organisation of States, the State of Kerala was formed on 1 November 1956 and subsequently, the Travancore-Cochin Public Service Commission was transformed and the Kerala Public Service Commission established. The first Chairman of Kerala Public Service Commission was V.K. Velayudhan. The number of the Members of the Commission was increased to Five from three in 1959. The present strength of members of the Kerala Public Service Commission is thirteen.
