Staff Selection Commission (SSC) is an esteemed organization and falls under the Government of India. This commission was founded to recruit staff for various posts in the various Ministries and Departments of the Government of India and Subordinate Offices.
The need to form SSC (then Service Selection commission) was initiated from the 47th report (1967–68) by the estimates committee. It was primarily formed to recruit lower categories of posts but with time, SSC now recruits Gazetted officers for various ministries and departments as well. It was finally renamed as Staff Selection Commission on September 26, 2021. SSC functions under the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances.
Every year SSC conducts various exams like SSC GD Constable, SSC MTS, SSC CHSL, SSC CPO, SSC CGL, SSC Stenographer, SSC Junior Translator, SSC Selection Posts and others to recruit subordinates for various ministries and offices.

Reputed Job Profile
SSC is most desired when it comes to central government jobs. Aspirants seeking well-paid jobs in the central government prefer SSC as their first choice.
Despite the delay in the exam, SSC has remained the first choice of the candidates. Therefore, the number of aspirants increases for these exams every year. One of the main reasons for this is the job security it provides as well as the reputation for working directly under various ministries (Central Government). Jobs through these exams provide phenomenal career growth.
Exam for Every aspirant
The reason why this exam is so popular is that it caters to every aspirant’s dream of becoming a government employee. Through this exam, you can become an Assistant to a Gazetted officer.
