Staff Selection Commission (SSC) was constituted in 1975 as Subordinate Services Commission, which was renamed from the 26th September, 1977. The commission makes recruitment to various Class III (now Group “C”) (non-technical) posts in the various Ministries / Departments of the Government of India and in Subordinate Offices. At present, there are seven Regional Offices at Allahabad, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Guwahati, Chennai, Bangalore and two Sub-Regional Offices at Raipur and Chandigarh. The Estimates Committee of the Parliament, in its 47th Report (1967-68), recommended the setting up of a Service Selection Commission for conducting examinations for recruitment to lower categories of posts. The functions of the Staff Selection Commission were redefined by the Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
