Assam Public Service Commission (APSC)

The Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) was created in the year 1951 under a Regulation namely The Assam Public Service Commission Regulations and Limitation of functions, 1951, notified vide No GGN.57/50/66 dt. 11th Aug., 1951. It was indeed one amongst the earliest Public Service Commissions. Like all other State Public Commissions, APSC also considers the holding of Combined Competitive  Examination  as its prime function.  Through this examination recruitment to the highest cadres of the State civil services is made. Currently a total  of  14 numbers  of  posts/cadres  are within the ambit  of  this  Examination.

The Combined Competitive Examination is conducted as per Assam Public Services  Combined Competitive Examination Rules-1989. This set of Rules provides  the details about the subjects, marks, duration of examination and syllabus for the Preliminary and Main Examinations. 


At the time of declaration of results of Preliminary examination, the successful candidates are notified to fill up the prescribed application form within a specified date for Main examination. This application form is to be procured from APSC office  either directly or through internet on production of Admit Card. The candidates  are to deposit  the forms  in the APSC  office either  directly  or  indirectly.

The CC (Main) examination is held only in Guwahati in three or four Centres depending  on the number of candidates. The Security procedure for main Examination is same as  that of the Preliminary Examination. For the purpose  of  the Main Examination the centre Heads are declared as Supervisors. Each answer script bears a Serial No and contains fixed nos of pages. 

In case of request from candidates  for  additional  answer sheets, additional answer scripts are given containing a different serial no which is recorded in the specified place of the main answer  script  by the invigilator. At the end of the examination, answer scripts are collected and taken to supervisor’s room. There these are then packed. There are no specific sizes of the packets. These  packets  are then sealed in front  of  the supervisor.


Interview is the third phase of the Combined Competitive Examination. Interview brings an end to the APSC’s direct interface with the candidates. At present Interview in CCE carries 200 marks while CCE Main examination carries 1400 marks Thus proportion of marks in Interview to the marks in main examination comes to around 14.28 percent.  In this context it is worth mentioning here that UPSC has scaled down this proportion to 12.2 percent.

The Kothari Committee in its Report made in 1976 had gone one step further to recommend that  the viva voce  test  should  carry only 300 out of a total of 3000 marks i.e. 10 per cent  only.   The  observation  of Hon’ble Supreme  Court  in Ashok Kumar Yadav and Ors. Etc vs State of Haryana And Ors. Etc. on 10 May, 1985 is worth mentioning here, “The percentage  of  marks  allocated  for the viva voce test by the Union Public Service  Commission  in case  of  selections  to the Indian Administrative Services  and other allied services is 12.2 and that has been found to be fair and just, as striking a proper balance between the written examination and the viva voce test. 

We would therefore direct that hereafter in case of selections to be made to the Haryana Civil Services (Executive Branch) and other allied services, where the competitive examination consists of a written examination followed by a viva voce test, the marks allocated for the viva voce test shall not exceed 12.2 per cent of the total marks taken into account for the purpose of selection. 

We would suggest that this percentage should also be adopted by the Public Service Commissions in other States, because it is desirable that there should be uniformity in the selection process throughout the country and the practice followed by the Union Public Service Commission should be taken as a guide for the State Public Service Commissions  to adopt  and  follow”
