About MPPSC > History

Consequent on the reorganization of States on 1st November 1956, eight districts of Madhya Pradesh have been transferred to the Bombay State and the remaining fourteen districts of the Madhya Pradesh  along with Madhya Bharat, Bhopal and Vindhya Pradesh were merged to form the new Madhya Pradesh. As there was no Public Service Commission for the States of Bhopal and Vindhya Pradesh, these being Part "C" States, and the recruitment for these States was being done by the Union Public Service Commission, the records of cases dealt with by the Union Public Service Commission for these two States  were not available to the new Commission.

The Annual Reports of the former Madhya Bharat Commission for the years 1954-55 and 1955-56 were duly presented to the Rajpramukh by that Commission but they were not published and put up before the legislature as required under the Constitution.


The Annual Report of the former Madhya Pradesh Commission for the calendar year 1955 could not be compiled owing to rush of work due to the impending  problems of reorganization of States.

Constitution and Personnel.—Under Section 118 (2) of States Reorganization  Act of 1956, the Public Service Commissions for the former States of Madhya Pradesh and Madhya Bharat ceased to exist from 1-11-1956. The new Madhva Pradesh Public Service Commission was constituted as follows from 1st November 1956, under Section 118(3) of the States Reorganization Act by the order of  the President, vide Notification  No. 59 /6 / 56-SR-II,  dated 27-10-56 of the Ministry of Home Affairs of Government of India.
