Brief History of WBPSC
The evolution of the Public Service Commission in India can be traced back to the Montagu-Chelmsford report which incorporated a provision regarding the persistent demands raised by the educated Indians for admission into the Indian Civil Service. The Govt. of India Act, 1919 paved the path for the formation of the Public Service Commissions and Section 96C of this act provided for the establishment of a Public Service Commission in India.
Subsequent to the passing of the Govt. of India Act, 1919 and the protracted correspondence between the Secretary of State, the Govt. of India and local Governments regarding the framework of the body to be constituted, the Lee Commission in its report dated 27th March, 1924, recommended the establishment of the Public Service Commission as suggested by the Government of India Act, 1919 without any further delay. The need for setting up a federal PSC and a PSC for each province was reiterated in the report of the Joint Committee on Indian Constitutional Reforms in 1934.
The Govt. of India Act, 1935 envisaged a Public Service Commission for the federation and a Provincial Public Service Commission for each Province or Group of Provinces.
