National Service Scheme – NSS

Objectives:

The overall objective of the National Service Scheme, as envisaged originally was service to the community, offered while undergoing instruction, in an educational institution. It was sought to arouse the social consciousness of students and provide them with the opportunity to work with the people around the educational campuses creatively and constructively and to put the education they receive to concrete social use. It has been felt that the primary aim of the scheme is to enable the students to upgrade their personality and experience through community service. Its end is the improvement of personality while service to the community is a means through which such improvement is sought to be achieved. The objective of the scheme, as re-stated, is therefore, ‘development of the personality of students through community service’. This objective is sought to be achieved by enabling the students to

Understand the community in which they work;

Understand themselves in relation to their community;

Identify the needs and problems of the community and in the solution of which they can be involved;

Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility;

Apply their education in finding practical solutions to individual and community problems;

Develop competence required for group living and sharing responsibilities;

Gain skills in mobilizing community participation;

Acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitudes;

Develop capacity to meet emergencies and natural disasters;

Practice National Integration.

Motto of NSS:

The motto or watchword of the National Service Scheme is ‘Not me but you’. This expresses 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 the society as a whole. Therefore, it should be the aim of NSS to demonstrate this motto in its day-to-day program.

NSS Day:

24th September is celebrated every year as the NSS Day with appropriate programs and activities.
