OPSC Chairman Satyajit Mohanty presented the Commission’s Annual Report 2021-22 to Governor

Bhubaneswar18/6/22:: Odisha Public Service Commission (OPSC) Chairman Satyajit Mohanty today called on Governor Prof Ganeshi Lal at the Raj Bhavan and presented the Commission’s Annual Report 2021-22.

According to an official press release, the year 2021-22 will be regarded as path-breaking for OPSC in the sense that the Commission published the ‘Recruitment Calendar’ for the first time since its inception in spite of the apprehension about whether it could stick to the deadlines.

The OPSC completed all the recruitment commitments as notified in the calendar in spite of the dislocation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

During this period 2,277 candidates have been recommended for appointment in Group-A and Group-B Services, 1563 promotions have concurred for 22 government departments, and 224 disciplinary proceedings have been disposed of.

This has not only boosted the confidence of the Commission but has enhanced its credentials among the candidates. This has encouraged the Commission to come out with Recruitment Calendar for the year 2022-23 for more than 5,000 posts in 26 government departments.


One of the key focus areas of the Commission will be to ensure more transparency in the recruitment process and faster publication of results.

The OPSC will continue to leverage technology for maintaining the integrity of the system and adopt objective criteria in every step of the selection process.

Upgrading the existing online portal, Integrated Recruitment Management System, to make it more user-friendly, conducting more and more Computer Based Recruitment Examinations (CBRE), masking the identity of the candidates during the evaluation of papers and interviews, etc. will continue to get the focused attention.

As part of the faster publication of results, the Commission will introduce an “on-screen” evaluation of descriptive papers for the current year.

OPSC aims at recommending the highest number of candidates in the recruitment year 2022-23, the press release added.
