Joint Public Service Commission:
- The Constitution makes a provision for the establishment of a Joint State Public Service Commission (JSPSC) for two or more states.
- JSPSC can be created by an act of Parliament on the request of the state legislatures concerned.
- Thus, a JSPSC is a statutory and not a constitutional body. The chairman and members of a JSPSC are appointed by the president.
- They hold office for a term of six years or until they attain the age of 62 years, whichever is earlier. They can be suspended or removed by the president.
- Resignation – to the president.
- A JSPSC presents its annual performance report to each of the concerned state governors. Each governor places the report before the state legislature.
