RAS Mains Syllabus 2021 in English | RPSC RAS Mains Syllabus 2021, Syllabus of RAS Mains Exam 2021 – updated (English Version): Rajasthan Public Service Commission had a glorious past of nearly 50 years. In 1923, the Lee Commission had recommended setting up a Central Public Service Commission in India. Still, it did not give much thought to the need of establishing similar commissions in provinces. It was mainly left to provincial governments’ discretion to recruit and exercise control over their Services, as they thought proper.

At the time of the formation of Rajasthan, the institution of Public Service Commission existed in only three of the 22 covenanting states viz. Jaipur, Jodhpur and Bikaner. After the merger of the princely states, the successor administration promulgated an ordinance on 16th August 1949 establishing the Rajasthan Public Service Commission Ajmer. It was published in Raj. Gazette on 20th August 1949, and it came into effect from this date. It provided for the abolition of the PSCs or other institutions performing duties like a PSC in the constituent states. The ordinance also provided inter-alia for the composition of the Commission, the staff and the functions of the Commission.

Given its important and impartial function, Public Service Commissions rightly find a place of pride in the Indian Constitution. Articles 16, 234, 315, to 323 deal with various functions and powers of the Public Service Commissions. The working of Rajasthan Public Service Commission is also regulated by Rajasthan Public Service Commission Rules & Regulation, 1963, Rules framed by the Rajasthan Public Service Commission for the conduct of their Business and the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (Regulations and validation of Procedure ordinance 1975 & Act 1976).
