The concept of National Service Scheme was started in the year 1969 to build a sense of social responsibility through teacher and students involvement in constructive service with the motto of “Not Me but You”. NSS volunteers work in rural areas, adopted villages and schools to serve the cause of society through survey, education and health awareness programmes.
Aim of NSS
The overall aim of the National Service Scheme as envisaged earlier, is to give an extension dimension to the higher education system and orient the student youth to community service while they are studying in educational institutions.
The concept of making National Service a part of University Education took about 20 years to evolve from the state of an idea into that of a scheme. The early seeds of it were sown by Dr. S. Radhakrishnan in 1948.
