The Himachal Pradesh Staff Selection Commission, (HPSSC) Hamirpur, is henceforth dissolved with immediate effect after taking into consideration the charges leveled in the inquiry reports indicating involvement of many officials from top to bottom in the paper leaks scams and other irregularities committed during the past three years.

Chief Minister, Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu revealed this here today in an interaction with the media. He said that the first charge sheet in this case would be filed today. 

The Government has decided to transfer the on-going recruitment process from HPSSC to Himachal Pradesh Public Service Commission, (HPPSC) Shimla, for the convenience of the candidates, till further arrangements. The employees of the Staff Selection Commission have been transferred to surplus pool and options will be given to them to join the new departments of their choice.  He said that the functioning of the Staff Selection Commission was under scanner since paper leak scams came to the fore and the culprits nabbed. The  findings of the report have indicated that for the past three years malpractices were at its peak and question papers were sold to selected candidates. The Commission had become the hub of corruption selling jobs and depriving the meritorious candidates, said the Chief Minister.
