Correct Option is 2,3 and 4

Articles (315 to 323 in Part XIV) of the Constitution deal with composition, appointment, and removal of members, power and functions, and independence of a State Public Service Commission. The Constitution makes a provision for the establishment of a Joint State Public Service Commission for two or more states. It can be created by an act of Parliament on the request of the state legislatures concerned. Thus, a JSPSC is a statutory and not a constitutional body. The chairman and members of a JSPSC are appointed by the president. They hold office for a term of six years or until they attain the age of 62 years. They can be suspended or removed by the president. They can also resign from their offices at any time by submitting their resignation letters to the president. The number of members of a JSPSC and their conditions of service is determined by the president. Hence statement 1 is incorrect and statements 2,3 and 4 are correct.
