About National Service Scheme


The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a public service program sponsored by an Indian government conducted by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. The scheme was launched in Gandhiji’s Centenary year in 1969. The Scheme aims to develop student’s personality through community services and to instill them with the idea of social welfare and service to the society without bias. It is a voluntary association of young people in Universities, Colleges and at +2 levels working as a campus-community linkage. NSS volunteers provide help to the needy individuals to raise their standard of living and lead a dignified life. In turn, the volunteers get to learn the art of survival in adverse conditions and scarce resources.

The NSS facilitates two types of activities: Regular activities (120 hours) and Annual Special Camp (120 hours). NSS volunteers who have served for atleast two years or 240 hours are entitled to get certificate from the university under the signature of the Vice-Chancellor and the Programme Coordinator.
