India - Let’s Know about the UPSC Union Public Service Commission
Do you know that UPSC is the gift of British government to their slave colony known as India?

Reality Views by sm-

In year 1924 Royal Commission under the chairmanship of Lord Lee submitted report and recommended the setting up of the public service commission.
This led to the establishment of the first public service commission on October 1, 1926 under the chairmanship of Sir Ross Barker.

After this in the year 1935, under the Government of India Act 1935 British Government set up Federal Public Service Commission.

And this Federal Public Service Commission, the commission made for the slave colony known as India was converted by our [smart or fool?] Indians after independence into UPSC, Union Public Service Commission and it was given a Constitutional status with the promulgation of Constitution of India on January 26, 1950

The Union Public Service Commission is a Constitutional Body Established under Article 315 of the Constitution of India.

The commission consists of a chairman and ten Members.
