National Service Scheme (NSS):
It aims at creating social awareness and also imparts human values in students. Its activities include protection of the environment and social services. It helps in the progress of students in their professional future.
The National Service Scheme owes its origin to the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi, who believed that the first duty of the students was not to treat their period of study as an opportunity for intellectual luxury, but to prepare themselves for final dedication in the service of society. In the post-independence era, the University Grants Commission headed by Dr. S. Radhakrishnan recommended introduction of National Service Scheme in the academic institutions on a voluntary basis with a view to developing healthy contacts between the students and teachers on the one hand and establishing a constructive linkage between the campus and the community on the other hand.
The idea was considered by policy makers and committees like the Central Advisory Board of Education (1950), National Service Committee (1959) and the The Education Commission headed by Dr. D.S.Kothari (1964-66). In 1958, the then Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in his letter to the Chief Ministers, had also mooted the idea of having social service as a prerequisite for graduation. The Education Ministers’ Conference of 1959 , the Vice Chancellors’ Conference of 1967 and the Conference of Student Representatives of the universities and institutions of higher learning convened by the Ministry of Education and the University Grants Commission also unanimously declared that national service could be a powerful instrument for national integration. And, finally, on September 24, Gandhi Centenary year (1969), the Union Education Minister Dr.V.K.R.V.Rao, launched the NSS programme in 37 universities covering all states.
