National Service Scheme (NSS)
National Service Scheme is a government sponsored public service governed by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports of India. NSS aims at bringing up social consciousness of the youth with an overall objective of personality development through community service. NSS enables students to participate in various programmes of social service and national development, and to help the community. The main motto of NSS is “not me, but you.” As per the motto, the programme aims to instill the idea of social welfare in students, and to provide service to society without bias. NSS volunteers work to ensure that everyone who is needy gets help to enhance their standard of living and lead a life of dignity.
NSS volunteers generally work in 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. In addition to the yeoman services rendered by the NSS volunteers at the nearby villages, the NSS units undertake to serve the villagers by organizing Awareness Programmes on Blood Donation, Eye Donation, Cleanliness, the Merits of Family Planning, the Right to Franchise, the Need to Grow Trees, the Imperative of Educating Children, Traffic Rules, Filarial infections, etc. Free Eye Checkup Camps, Filaria Awareness Programme, Tree Plantation Campaigns have also been organised.
