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 father of the nation. The central theme which he tried to impress upon his student audience time and again, was that they should always keep before them, their social responsibility. The first duty of the students should be, not to treat their period of study as one of the opportunities for indulgence in intellectual luxury, but for preparing themselves for final dedication in the service of those who provided the sinews of the nation with the national goods & services so essential to society. Advising them to form a living contact with the community in whose midst their institution is located, he suggested that instead of undertaking academic research about economic and social disability, the students should do "something positive so that the life of the villagers might be raised to a higher material and moral level".

The post-independence era was marked by an urge for introducing social service for students, both as a measure of educational reform and as a means to improve the quality of educated manpower. The University Grants Commission headed by Dr. Radhakrishnan recommended introduction of national service 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 main objectives of National Service Scheme (NSS) are :

i.    Understand the community in which they work
ii.   Understand themselves in relation to their community
iii.   Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem-solving
iv.   Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility
v.    Utilise their knowledge in finding practical solutions to individual and community problems
vi.   Develop competence required for group-living and sharing of responsibilities
vii.  Gain skills in mobilising community participation
viii.  Acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitudes
ix.    Develop capacity to meet emergencies and natural disasters and
x.     Practise national integration and social harmony
