NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME (NSS)

OVERVIEW:

National Service Scheme, under the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Govt. of India, popularly known as NSS was launched in Gandhiji's Birth Centenary Year 1969. NSS volunteers generally work with villages, slums and voluntary agencies to complete 120 hours of regular activities during an academic year. As per the fundamental principles of National Service Scheme, a volunteer is expected to remain in constant touch with the community.

Special camps are organized generally on various developmental issues of national importance. In the past the themes of the Special Camping Programme have been 'Youth against Famine', 'Youth Against Dirt and Disease', 'Youth for Rural Reconstruction', 'Youth for Eco-Development and 'Youth for Mass Literacy', 'Youth for National Integration & Social Harmony'. The current need is Youth for Sustainable Development. The motto of NSS is "NOT ME BUT YOU".

The main objectives of the NSS are to inculcate the spirit of service and develop national consciousness in the minds of the students. The NSS provides a chance to the students to participate in nation - building tasks.

  1. To understand the community in which they work;
