National Service Scheme


In India, the idea of involving students in the task of national service dates back to the times of Mahatma Gandhi. The post-independence era was marked by an urge for introducing social service.

The University Grants Commission headed by Dr. Radhakrishnan recommended to introduce National Service in the Academic Institutions on a voluntary basis in order to have a healthy contact between the students and teachers on one hand and establishing a relationship between the campus and community on the other hand.


  • In 1959, a draft outline of the scheme was placed before the Education Ministers Conference.
  • In 1960, Prof. K.G. Saiyidain studied national service by students and submitted his report under the title “National Service for the Youth”
  • The Education Commission headed by Dr. D.S. Kothari (1964-66) recommended this programme called the National Service Scheme (NSS).
  • On September 24, 1969, the Union Education Minister Dr. V.K.R.V. Rao, launched the NSS programme in 37 universities.


The main objectives of National Service Scheme (NSS) are:

  • To understand the community in which they work
  • To understand themselves in relation to their community
  • To identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem-solving
  • To develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility
  • To utilize their knowledge in finding practical solutions to individual and community problems
  • To develop competence required for group-living and sharing of responsibilities
  • To gain skills in mobilizing community participation
  • To acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitudes
  • To develop capacity to meet emergencies and natural disasters and
  • To practice national integration and social harmony


The Motto of NSS “Not Me But You“,

  • Reflects the essence of democratic living
  • And upholds the need for selfless service.
  • Individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society
  • The NSS volunteers shall strive for the well-being of the society.
