NSS

Background: 

The National Service Scheme (NSS), a voluntary and value- based student youth programme, is one of the major youth schemes being operated in the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports. The Scheme was launched with the primary objective of developing the personality and character of the student youth through voluntary community service. It was launched on 24th September 1969, during the birth centenary celebration of Mahatma Gandhi, in 37 universities involving 40,000 students. As on 31.03.2017, NSS had about 38.60 lakh volunteers enrolled in 41,442 NSS units spread over 402 Universities/ +2 Councils, 16,331 Colleges/ Technical Institutions and 11,894 Senior Secondary Schools. So far, over 4.87 crore students have benefited from this largest student-volunteership programme in the world.

Motto: 

The motto of the NSS is 'NOT ME BUT YOU'. This expresses the essence of democratic living and upholds the need to appreciate the other person's point of view first and to show consideration for fellow human beings. It also underlines that the welfare of the individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of Society as a whole. NSS attempts to establish meaningful linkages between "Campus and Community", "College and Village" and "Knowledge and Action".

  • To render service to the community while studying in an educational institution.

  • To arouse the social conscience among students.
