The National Service Scheme (NSS) was officially started on 24th September 1969, to establish a meaningful link between the campus and the community. Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, recognized the fact 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, villages, where majority of the population live, represent the country. Therefore for the national reconstruction and national resurgence it was deemed fit that the students and teachers should be properly sensitized and utilized to strengthen the Indian society as a whole with particular emphasis on the rural community. Therefore, student youth, teachers and the community are considered as the three basic components of the National Service Scheme.Vision
