Application open for Kerala's first administrative service exam
The Kerala Public Service Commission (KPSC) has invited application for the Kerala Administrative Service (KAS) exam from November 1. This is the first time that the state is conducting this exam and graduates from any stream, including those who have done professional courses, are eligible to apply.
The commission’s selection process will be in three parts including a preliminary exam, a main exam and an interview. The preliminary exam will be conducted in February 2020. There will be two general studies papers, including a language proficiency test. The main exam will have three descriptive papers of two hours each. It will be followed by an interview.
Once selected, candidates will have to complete a probation of two years’ duration. During that period, those who have not studied Malayalam at the matriculation level (secondary school) should pass a Malayalam proficiency test along with other departmental tests.
Recruitment to gazetted posts
Through KAS, candidates will get direct posting at the relatively senior levels of Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Revenue Divisional Officer (RDO), and others.
For applying, candidates should register through https://www.keralapsc.gov.in/. The last date for applying is December 4.
