Previous Notification and New TSPSC Board

The TSPSC has already issued notification in 2022 for 503 vacancies. The TSPSC Group 1 exam was conducted twice but cancelled both times due to irregularities. The first attempt in October 2022 was cancelled due to alleged question paper leakage, and the second attempt in June 2023 was cancelled by the Telangana High Court due to issues in the conduct of the exam. The existing TSPSC Board chairman and members resigned from their posts, and a New TSPSC Board with new chairman and board members has been formed. In the meantime, the requirement for posts has increased in various departments.

New Notification: Increased Vacancies and Age limits

The government has collected the additional requirements from all the executive departments and prepared a new notification. Since then, the candidates have been eagerly waiting for the new notification. Hence, the commission cancelled the earlier notification and issued a new notification with an additional 60 vacancies.

In the 2024 TSPSC Group 1 notification, the maximum age limit for all the posts except uniform services has been increased from 44 years to 46 years. However, the maximum age limit for uniform based posts such as, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Deputy Superintendent of Jails (Men), and Assistant Excise Superintendent is fixed at 31 years. The details of the increased post wise age limits are provided in the article:TSPSC New Age limits 2024: Are you Eligible?

New Examination Pattern and Application Filling Guide

The TSPSC has specifically mentioned that candidates who have applied for the Group 1 exam in 2022, through earlier notification need not pay the examination fee. However, the candidate has to submit the application afresh by providing information regarding the basic details, educational qualifications, communication address, etc.

This year, in the New TSPSC Group 1 application form, the commission has added Group Subject Percentage of Marks Secured (%), where the students have to provide the percentage of marks obtained in the Part 2 subjects as per the Consolidated Memorandum of Marks (CMM).
