We will let you know — a little further down — how Waah Jobs empowers job seekers when it comes to Assam Govt recruitment 2020-21. For now, let’s take a look at the crucial role played by the Assam PSC for govt job Assam 2020-21.

About Assam Public Service Commission

For an aspirant who fancies an Assam career 2020-21 new jobs created by the Government of Assam or GOI are undoubtedly the avenues that candidates should take. Speaking of new jobs, did you know that there are commissions, either state or national-level, that are in charge of selecting candidates?  

Every state in India has its own commission, or recruitment board if you will. Assam too has its own commission called the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC). It is responsible for conducting competitive examinations and interviews to unearth candidates who match the job description in terms of skill and qualification. The APSC is tasked with the duty to select individuals who are motivated to the core. 

The recruitment process that is adopted by the APSC is not only time-bound, but also fair, organized, and transparent. Such characteristics of the recruitment process — managed and maintained by the APSC — directly influence the characteristics of candidates warranted by the job roles and the commission. In other words, the integrity and quality of the recruitment process has a bearing on the type of candidates being selected.

The APSC isn’t a commission, recently mushroomed to manage the recruitment activities in the State of Assam. It has been around for quite some time now. Earlier, the composition of the commission between 1937-1950 included a chairman and two members. However, this changed in 1951 when the commission could have up to 3 members, including the chairman. As the years progressed, the number of board members fluctuated. Between 1986-91, the number of members (excluding the chairman) rose to six. Then in the year 1991, the commission had one chairman and 10 members. Finally, in 2005, by way of an amendment the APSC had a total of 7 dignitaries — one chairman and 6 members. This number hasn’t changed to date.

Now that you have a fair bit of idea about the APSC composition, we jump straight to its roles and responsibilities. The commission is entrusted to conduct recruitment drives for various state-level posts across Assam. Of course, the approach taken by the APSC is always methodical. They usually start by releasing official notifications for Assam Govt jobs. 

The notifications have a number of objectives. Firstly, you could consider them as advertisements for all vacant positions. Secondly, they contain crucial information about the recruitment drive, such as the opening and closing of the application window, the selection process, the eligibility criteria, number of vacancies, the application process, and so on. And finally, they guide candidates on how to apply and prepare for the recruitment drive. Candidates must bear in mind that the APSC might release multiple notifications or alter details in the preliminary notification as and when they desire.

For every job post on Waah Jobs, you can find all the APSC notifications, from the first to the last, neatly organized in the “Important Links” section. We suggest you either refer to the notifications that we have curated for you or visit the APSC portal ( for every new Assam Govt job.  

Now, let’s get to the various roles and responsibilities of the APSC. Here’s a list of things that they’re accountable for. The following key roles and functions of the APSC — which is the apex recruitment body in Assam for gazetted and non-gazetted government job posts — have been laid out under the provisions of Article 320, Part XIV of the Constitution of India.

  • Act as an advisor to the State Government of Assam
  • Carry out recruitment for Assam Government jobs 2020-21
