Direct recruitment – Scheme for recruitment to Group I, Group II Services


Orders were issued revising the scheme and syllabus of the examination for making direct recruitment to the posts under Group-I, Group-II services and also Gazetted and Non-Gazetted categories respectively to be conducted by A.P. Public Service Commission.

Government of Andhra Pradesh have issued revised scheme of examination for Group-I, Group-II services and also Gazetted and Non-Gazetted categories as detailed in Annexure I, II and III to the said Order. As per the revised scheme of examination, selections shall be made based on the written examination only except for recruitment to the posts under Group-I services and also certain Gazetted categories which has the interview system in addition to written examination.

The Chairman I/c, A.P. Public Service Commission in his letter dated 30.04.2011 has proposed certain recommendations / suggestions to bring reforms in the functioning of Commission. Accordingly, Government have constituted a Committee in the reference above to submit report on the suggestions / recommendations made by the Commission. The Committee, after holding detailed discussions at its meetings from time to time has submitted its report in the reference. One of the recommendations, among others, is on the selections to be made to the posts which require written examination followed by an interview apart from Group-I services.

The Committee in its report has observed that for all technical posts testing of domain knowledge through the written examination would suffice. The recruitments to (1) Engineering services (2) Medical and (3) Scientific and technical posts should be done only on the basis of a written examination which will assess the competence and knowledge of the subject which is essential for discharging their duties effectively. The interviews should be conducted in addition to written examination for all posts which are executive in nature where articulation skills and public interface is required. For such posts interviews may continue. On this basis, the Committee has identified certain posts under Gazetted and Non-Gazetted categories for which interviews need to be conducted.

The Committee has also observed that the Degree qualification has been prescribed both for Group-I services as well as Executive posts in Group-II services. The Executive posts in Group-II services are also important focal posts and these posts require public interface and good communication skills. The Group-I Service Examination has objective papers for the Preliminary Examination and descriptive format for Main Examination as opposed to only objective type for Group-II services. The Committee therefore, felt that the Group I examination format would be a better test of the candidates knowledge, analytical ability and communication skills and that recruitments to the Executive posts under Group-II Services may be made along with Group – I services. It has therefore been recommended to form a new Group-I (B) services along with Executive posts under Group-II services. Accordingly orders were issued in G.O. reclassifying the Group-I service as Group-I (A) Service & Group-I (B) Service.

Government have furnished the report of the Committee to the A.P. Public Service Commission in the reference . The Commission has forwarded the remarks of the Commission through the reference.

Government have examined the above matter in detail and in exercise of powers vested in the government in Regulation 14-A of A.P.
