Governments all over the world create public service commissions for hiring the best people for various jobs. In Pakistan, there is the Federal Public Service Commission for this purpose at the national level and other public service commissions at the provincial level.
The Federal Public Service Commission is performing its duty efficiently by conducting Combined Competitive Examinations (CSS) annually. It also conducts other examinations for various federal government departments on time. It does not delay examinations and play with the future of poor and meritorious candidates. But, unfortunately, the Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) lacks behind in this great cause.
It does not conduct combined competitive examinations annually but does so after a gap of every five or six years. Due to this factor, the age limit of young aspirants for the exam expires.
However, other provincial public service commissions conduct the examinations annually like the Punjab Public Service Commission which conducted the Provincial Management Service examinations in 2010.
I request the chief minister, the chief secretary and the chairman of the SPSC on the behalf of youth of Sindh for announcing the dates of the combined competitive exams as soon as possible. Besides, such examinations should be conducted on an annual basis, so that every young candidate of Sindh can offer his/her service for the public.
