They conduct the exam all over India in different cities/towns. This agency is granted by Part XIV of the Constitution of India, named as Services under the Union and the States. Thousands and Lakhs of students or bachelor candidates apply for the exam every year; for the UPSC exam, the candidate should pass his/her graduate degree. 

History: The civil servants of the East India Company were selected by the directors of the company, and after that, they received training in London and back in India. The report of Lord Macaulay says that the criteria of the British selection committee were merit-based. Modern Civil Service in India was introduced in 1854. The Civil Service was established in 1854, and competitive exams were started in 1855 for the recruitment of candidates. Initially, this examination was conducted for the Indian Civil Service, which was held only in Landon. To appear in the exam, an age criterion was made, which was 18 years, which was the minimum age, and 23 years was the maximum age. The syllabus was designed based on European classics, which was difficult for Indian people. In 1864, Shri Satyendranath Tagore, brother of Shri Rabindranath Tagore, was the first Indian to qualify for the exam. 

For the next 50 years, Indians conducted simultaneous examinations to be held in India without any success because the British Government did not want many Indians to qualify and enter the ICS. From 1922 onwards, the Indian Civil Service Examination was to be held in India, first in Allahabad (U.P) and later in Delhi (Capital of India), with the setting up of the Federal Public Service Commission. This led to the establishment of the first Public Service Commission on 1 October 1926 under the chairmanship of Sir Ross Barker. For the selection of police for India, the first exam was held in England in June 1893, where top-10 candidates were appointed as Assistant Superintendents of Police. After 1920, the exam also started in India. Till 1931, Indian candidates were appointed against 20% of the total posts of Superintendents of Police. However, because of the non-availability of the desired European candidates, more Indian candidates were elected to the Indian Police from the year 1939 onwards.

Regarding the Forest Service, the British India Government started the Forest Department in 1864 to organize the affairs of the Forest Department, and the Forest Service was constituted in 1867. The selected candidate gets their training in Germany and France. After training, they are sent back to India. After independence, the Indian Forest Service was created in 1966 under the All India Service Act 1951.

The functions of the Public Service Commission were not explained in the Government of India Act, 1919, but they were regulated by the Public Service Commission (Functions) Rules, 1926, framed under sub-section (2) of Section 96(C) of the Government of India Act, 1919. The Government of India Act 1935 further envisaged a Public Service Commission for the Federation and a Provincial Public Service Commission for each group of Provinces. Therefore, regarding the provisions of the Government of India Act, 1935 and with its coming into effect on 1 April 1937, the Public Service Commission became the Federal Public Service Commission. So, with the beginning of the Constitution of India on 26 January 1959, the Federal Public Service Commission is known as the Union Public Service Commission.
