The government jobs in India have historically been stratified into being gazetted jobs and non gazetted jobs. This distinction has existed for more than 100 years. Traditionally the gazetted posts are those of officers who wield discretionary executive authority. The non gazetted posts are those of staff in the lower rungs of the government hierarchy such as clerks, inspectors, supervisors who, by and large, carry out the instructions given by the gazetted officers without exercising any significant discretion of their own as to how the instructions given to them are to be carried out.

Selections to non gazetted posts – mainly in Group ‘C’ – and to a few categories of upgraded Group ‘B’ posts which were originally in Group ‘C’, are held annually by the Staff Selction Commission (SSC), an autonomous administrative entity working under the supervision of the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT), government of India, having its headquarters in New Delhi.
