In 1956, Andhra Pradesh state was formed. With the establishment of the state, Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) was also formed. Which is a part of Andhra Pradesh government.
Article 315 of the Indian constitution is related to the establishment of the commission. The functions of the commission are enumerated in article 320 of the Indian constitution.
On the eve of formation of Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission, Andhra Public Service Commission was functioning with a Chairman and two Members and Hyderabad Public Service Commission was functioning with one Member. Hence, A.P. Public Service Commission was constituted with a Chairman and 3 Members. With increasing work load, Government enhanced the Members as five in the year 1981 and later to Chairman and 7 Members in the year 1983. Government again reviewed the strength in 1994 and enhanced it to Chairman and 9 Members. This is the present strength.
