Institution   National Service Scheme
India, the land of Ganga, Gautam and Gandhi, known as the spiritual teacher of the World, has always been glorifying inner piety, peace and perfection which can be achieved through the worship of God and service of mankind. Both the National Service Scheme (NSS) and the UNICEF are the organizations that are dedicated to the upliftment and service of the people especially women and children. After passing through various committees and conferences from 1950 onwards on the recommendation of Dr. C.D. Deshmukh, Prof. K.G. Saiyidain and Dr. D.S. Kothari, the National Service Scheme was launched on September 24,1969 by Dr. VKRV Rao the Education minister of India at that time. It was very significant
that this scheme was started during the Gandhi Centenary Year, as it was Gandhiji who inspired the Indian youth to participate in the movement for Indian independence and the social uplift of the down-trodden masses of the country.
The father of the Nation was of the view that "the first duty of the students should be, not to treat their period of study as one of the opportunities for indulgence in the intellectual luxury, but for preparing themselves for final dedication in the service of those on whose back they were resting." He expected of the students to do" something positive so that the life of the villagers might be raised to a higher material and moral level."
The activities undertaken under the National Service Scheme (NSS) have included environmental enrichment and conservation, health, family welfare and nutrition programmes; awareness creation programmes for the rights and status of women; works like rodent control and pest management; weed control, soil testing and soil health care; promotion of co-operative societies; non formal education; and assistance to local authorities in relief and rehabilitation work during the natural calamities and natural emergencies. These activities are done by an NSS unit of 100 volunteers throughout the academic session under Normal activities programme during the prescribed period of 120 hours of social service.
During these programmes the volunteers bear in mind the motto of NSS-"NOT ME BUT YOU"- and a badge on his or her breast. The badge was designed after the wheel of the Konark Sun God Temple that inspires the volunteers for social service. This scheme is jointly sponsored and supervised by the Department of Youth Affair and Sports, Ministry of Human Resource development (now Ministry of Culture, Youth Affair and Sports) Government of India and State Government through the 888 NSS regional Center and the NSS Cell of the State Secretariat. Under the governance and guidance of the Vice-Chancellor, the Programme Co-ordinator gets the programme organized at the college level through the programme Officers who work with the consent and approval of their principals. From time to time the programme officers are trained by the Training Orientation and Research Centers (TORC's) and Training and orientation Centers (TOC's) of the respective states and universities.
The objective of NSS-"development of the personality of student through community service"- is ought to be achieved by enabling the student to:
  • Understand the community in which they work;
  • Understand to themselves in relation to their community;
  • Identify the needs and problems in the community in the solution of which they can involved;
  • Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility;
  • Apply their education in finding practical solution to individual and community problems;
  • Develop competence required for group living and sharing responsibility;
  • Gain skills in mobilising community participation;
  • Acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitude;
  • Practise national integration.

Plantation has always been a very important item on the agenda of the N.S.S all over the country. This university has organized several symposia, seminars, workshops, orientation programmes discussing the causes and consequences of environmental degradation and encouraging plantation. Our scholarly, dynamic and enthusiastic Vice-chancellor, Dr. R.P. Singh in the N.S.S meetings and programmes has always demanded some concrete work from the organization to protect our environment and encourage plantation. Brigadier R.K. Singh (Retd), a well known environmentalist of northern India, through his informative lectures/talks and "nature Club" magazine has been discouraging the use of Polythene and encouraging plantation for several years. As per reports (2001-2002) received from the colleges so far the N.S.S units have planted more than 15000 plants during this year.
