The National Service Scheme is an Indian Government Sponsored public service programme conducted by the Ministry Of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. N.S.S. Scheme was launched in Gandhiji’s Centenary year in 1969. Aimed at developing students personality through community service, N.S.S. is a young voluntary association of young people in colleges.
There are two types of activities : Regular activities and Annual Special Camp. All N.S.S volunteers who have served N.S.S for at least 2 years and worked under N.S.S are entitled to a certificate from the university under the signature of the Vice – Chancellor and the Programme Coordinator. Volunteers may involved in such activities as :
3. Stage shows or a procession creating awareness of such issues as social problems, education and cleanliness
4. Awareness Rallies
5. Inviting doctors for health camps
The motto of the N.S.S is “ Not me but you”. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society on the whole.
The N.S.S symbol is embossed on the NSS badge. The NSS volunteers wear it while undertaking any program or community services. The Konark Wheel in the symbol has eight bars, which represent the 24 hours of the day. Hence, the badge reminds the wearer to be in readiness for the service of the Nation round the clock i.e. for 24 hours. The red color in the badge indicates that the NSS volunteers are full of young blood. The Navy Blue color indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind.
