JK PSC Exam

JKPSC stands for the Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission. The Commission conducts civil service exams for positions in J&K’s administrative, accounting, and police departments. This is similar to the IAS exam, and students have to prepare as they prepare for the UPSC exams.

All details are available on the official website of JKPSC. The JKPSC 2021 mains exams were scheduled to take place from 10th to 17th March 2022. However, the board has announced in a notification dated 9th March 2022, that the exams have been deferred (postponed) until further notice.
