The A.P. Public Service Commission came into existence on 1 st November, 1956 with
the formation of the State of Andhra Pradesh . Before this, there was Andhra Public
Service Commission in the Andhra State and Hyderabad Public Service Commission in
the Hyderabad State . Andhra Service Commission came into existence only in 1953
after the bifurcation of composite Madras State into Andhra and Madras States .
On the eve of formation of Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission, Andhra Public
Service Commission was functioning with a Chairman and two Members and Hyderabad
Public Service Commission was functioning with one Member. Hence, A.P. Public Service
Commission was constituted with a Chairman and 3 Members. With increasing work load,
Government enhanced the strength of the Commission to Chairman and 5 Members in
the year 1981 and later to Chairman and 7 Members in the year 1983. Government again
reviewed the strength in 1994 and enhanced it to Chairman and 9 Members. This is
