NSS - Profile

National Service Scheme

Ever since Independence there has been growing awareness of the desirability of involving students in national service. The First Education Commission (1950) recommended the introduction of national service by students on a voluntary basis. Subsequently on the basis of suggestion made by the then Prime Minister     Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, a committee was appointed Under the chairmanship of C.D.Deshmukh to prepare a scheme for compulsory National service by students prior to their admission for degree courses. In pursuance of various recommendations the Ministry of Education introduced the National Service Scheme during 1969-70. National Service Scheme, popularly known as NSS, was launched in 1969 to celebrate the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation. The response of the scheme has been excellent. The main aim of NSS is to facilitate personality development of students through social and community service.

The College has two NSS Units with a total strength of 200 student volunteers.

NSS Moto

NSS LOGO.jpgThe Motto of NSS "Not Me But You", reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for self-less service. NSS helps the students’ development & appreciation to other person's point of view and also show consideration towards other living beings. The philosophy of the NSS is a good doctrine in this motto, which underlines on the belief that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society as a whole and therefore, the NSS volunteers shall strive for the well-being of the society.

NSS Symbol

 

The NSS symbol is based on the "Rath" wheel of the Konark Sun Temple situated in Odisha. The navy blue colour indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind. The red colour in the badge indicates that the NSS volunteers are full of blood i.e. lively, active, energetic and full of high spirit. The giant wheels of the Sun Temple, portray the cycle of creation, preservation and release and signify the movement in life across time and space.

 Enrolment in NSS

NSS is a voluntary scheme. NSS scheme starts from 11th Standard onwards. At college level the NSS volunteers will be enrolled from the first and second year degree-class students. The students from foreign countries studying in Indian universities can also join NSS so that they may share the experiences of national reconstruction and community work. NCC cadets will not be allowed to join NSS. Similarly NSS volunteers will not participate in NCC or any other youth organization as long as they are in NSS.

An NSS volunteer needs to devote a total of 240 hours social service in two years duration. Every year, a NSS volunteer has to devote 20 hours of orientation and 100 hours of community service. To enroll as NSS volunteer, candidate has to  contact the NSS Programme Officer of the college. Enrollment in NSS is free.

NSS - Adopted Villages

Adoption of a village or an urban slum is a very meaningful programme in NSS. It is far better to concentrate attention on one village and take up the task for development perspective, than to fritter away energy in many locations involving too many activities which may not be completed at all or where the follow up action may not be possible. From this point of view, village adoption programme should ensure continuity of work vis-à-vis sustained action, evaluation and follow up work
