National Service Scheme (NSS)
National Service Scheme, Popularly known as NSS is an extension of activities to the higher education system to orient the student youth to community service while they are studying in education institutions, under the aegis of Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Govt. of India. Ever since Independence there has been growing awareness of desirability of involving students in national service. The First Education Commission (1950) recommended the introduction of national service by students on a voluntary basis. Subsequently on basis of suggestion made by the Prime Minister Nehru, a committee was appointed under the chairmanship of Dr.C.D.Deshmukh to prepare a scheme for compulsory national service by students prior to their admission for degree courses Prof. K.G.Saiyidain who undertook a study of national service may be introduced on a voluntary basis. A similar recommendation was made by Education Commission appointed under the chairmanship of Dr. D.S.Kothari.
The conference of Vice-chancellors in September 1967 welcomed this recommendation and suggested that a special committee of Vice-chancellors should be set up to examine this question in details .The details were soon worked out and the Planning commission sanctioned the outlay for 5 Crores for developing the NSS during the 4th five year plan as pilot project in selected institutions and universities .In pursuance of these recommendations ,the Ministry of Education introduced the National Service Scheme during 1969-70.The choice of the timing to its introduction was remarkably suspicious as 1969 was the birth centenary year of Mahatma Gandhi , the father of the nation to whom social service almost a religion.

The objective of the National Service Scheme is ‘NOT BE BUT YOU’ This express the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other man’s point of view and also to show consideration for fellow human beings. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of society as a whole. Therefore it should be the aim of the NSS to demonstrate this motto in its day to day program.
