Serving at Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) is the dream of thousands of students and job seekers in Sindh. However, certain factors come into play for cracking this exam such as knowledge, confidence, communication skills, and other such things. In this blog, we will tell you all there is to know about this exam, eligibility criteria, and how to be a part of the commission.
In a parliamentary system of government, for example, the Pakistani government, the responsibility for running and managing the country falls on the chosen minister, the Members of the National Assembly (MNAs). However, administrating a country that is vastly overpopulated is quite difficult for the handful of the ministers. To help them with their responsibilities, civil officers play an important role.
SPSC is responsible for evaluating the applicants who wish to serve the nation. Firstly, the commission evaluates the criteria. Afterwards, they conduct the test [similar to NTS] and the interview. At the end, they analyse if an individual is worthy of the post.
History of SPSC
The history of this commission predates the creation of Pakistan. However, some policies were revised under the provision of Act 1935 after independence.
Currently, the commission functions and is given autonomy under the constitution of Pakistan. Similar to any other commission, Sindh Public Service Commission is also administered by a Chairman, who is appointed by the Governor of Sindh. To help him achieve the goals of the organisation, several members are also appointed.
At present the organisation is chaired by Mr. Noor Muhammad Jadmani.
