There may be a Public Service Commission for two or more States. The Constitution provides: Two or more States may agree that there shall be one Public Service Commission for that group of States, and if a resolution to that effect is passed by the House, or where there are two Houses, by each House of Legislature of each of those States, Parliament may by law provide for the appointment of a Joint State Public Service Commission to serve the needs of those States. For example, there is a Joint Public Service Commission for the States of Punjab and Haryana.
