The Estimate Committee of Parliament, in its 47th Report (1967-68), recommended the setting up of a Staff Selection Commission for conducting examinations for recruitment to lower categories of posts. Subsequently an Examination Wing was initially added to the Secretariat Training School, renamed as the Institute of Secretariat Training and Management ( ISTM).
