The first Public Service Commission was set up on 1 October 1926 by the then British Indian Government in response to the demands of Indian politicians that the Indian Civil Services be Indianized. The functions of this Public Service Commission were largely advisory and, because of this limitation, it failed to satisfy the demands of Indian political parties associated with the struggle for freedom. The British Indian government then set up a Federal Public Service Commission and provided for the formation of provincial level Public Service Commissions under the Government of India Act 1935.The Union Public Service Commission if requested by the Governor of a State, may, with the approval of the President work for the State, as in Manipur Public Service Commission and Kerala Public Service Commission.

Under the old pattern, the Preliminary Examination consisted of two compulsory papers – a paper on General Studies which carried 150 marks and a paper on one optional subject (out of a list of 23 subjects) which carried 300 marks. The candidates can choose the optional subject from list of the subjects.
Under the new pattern, the Preliminary Examination is the Civil Service Aptitude Test consisting of two compulsory papers of two hours' duration and will have 200 marks each. The earlier optional paper was replaced by a new paper which will cover comprehension, interpersonal skills including communication skills, logical reasoning and analytical ability, decision making, problem solving, general mental ability, basic numeracy and English language comprehension.
General Studies paper under the new pattern will not have general mental ability which will be included in the new CSAT paper II.
