of conducting competitive examination for appointment to certain posts came into
consideration way back in the year 1853 and a committee for giving shape to that
was constituted under the chairmanship of Lord Macaulay in the year 1854. Later
on the Federal Public Service Commission and the State Public Service
Commissions were constituted under the Government of India Act, 1935.
The Bihar Public Service Commission came into existence from
1st April 1949 after its separation from the Commission for the States of Orissa
and Madhya Pradesh, in accordance with sub-section (1) of section 261 of the
Government of India Act, 1935, as adapted. Its constitutional status was
pronounced with the promulgation of Constitution of India on 26th January, 1950.

The Bihar Public Service Commission initially began its
functioning for the State of Bihar with its headquarters at Ranchi. The State
Government decided to shift the headquarters of the Commission from Ranchi to
Patna and it was finally shifted to Patna on 1st March 1951.
