State Public Service Commission in India

The Indian Constitution allows the Parliament to create joint services for the Central and State governments. The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) handles recruitment for these. Moreover, State-level administrative work is filled by State Public Service Commissions (SPSCs). Furthermore, both UPSCs and SPSCs are independent Constitutional bodies established under the same articles (315-323). Additionally, they oversee recruitment, promotions, and disciplinary matters for their respective spheres.
