The National Service Scheme (NSS)

nss logo

INTRODUCTION:
The National Service Scheme, under the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Govt. of India, popularly known as NSS was launched in Gandhiji's Birth Centenary Year 1969, in 37 Universities involving 40,000 students with primary focus on the development of personality of students through community service. The Scheme was started to establish a meaningful linkage between the campus and the community. Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, had recognized that the country could not progress in a desired direction until the student youth were motivated to work for the upliftment of the villages/community. For Gandhiji the villages, where majority of the population lived, represent the country i.e. India. Therefore, for the national reconstruction and national resurgence it was deemed fit that the students and teachers should be properly sensitized and utilized for strengthening the Indian society as a whole with particular emphasis on rural community. Therefore, student youth, teachers and the community are considered the three basic components of the National Service Scheme.   
The programme aims to inculcate social welfare in students, and to provide service to society without bias. NSS volunteers work to ensure that everyone who is needy gets help to enhance their standard of living and lead a life of dignity. In doing so, volunteers learn from people in villages how to lead a good life despite a scarcity of resources. it also provides help in natural and man-made disasters by providing food, clothing and first aid to the disaster victims.
The cardinal principle of the programme is that it is organised by the students themselves and both students and teachers through their combined participation in social service, get a sense of involvement in the tasks of national development. Besides, the students, particularly, obtain work experience which might help them to find avenues of self-employment or employment in any organisation at the end of their university career.
The National Service Scheme helps youths to channelize their energies and capabilities towards nation building activities by organizing them into volunteer groups. It plays a vital role in the personality development of the students and engage them in the upliftment of the society and give them a sense of participation in national reconstruction.
The College got its first Unit of National Service Scheme (NSS) in the year 1990-91. As the strength of the College grew after every subsequent year, a need for another Unit of the NSS was realized. It was only in the year 2006 that the Himachal Pradesh University NSS Advisory Committee sanctioned additional NSS Unit to the College. Since the addition of this Unit, the NSS activities in the College expanded considerably and a larger number of students came under its fold every year since then.
