National Service Scheme
The overall aim of National Service Scheme as envisaged earlier, is to give an extension dimension to the higher education system and orient the student youth to community service while they are studying in educational institution. The reason for the formulation of this objective is the general realisation that the college and +2 level students have a tendency to get alienated from the village/slum masses which constitute the majority of the population of the country. The educated youth who are expected to take the reins of administration in future are found to be unaware of the problems of the village/slum community and in certain cases are indifferent towards their needs and problems. Therefore it is necessary to arouse the social conscience of the students, and to provide them an opportunity to work with the people in the villages and slums. It is felt that their interaction with the common villagers and slum dwellers will expose them to the realities of life and bring about a change in their social perception.
The broad objectives of NSS are to :
To understand the community in which they work;
To understand themselves in relation to their community;
To Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem solving process;
To develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility.
To utilize their knowledge in finding practical solution to individual and community problems;
To develop competence required for group-living and sharing of responsibilities;
To gain skills in mobilising community participation
To acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitude;
To develop capacity to meet emergencies, natural disasters, practice national integration and social harmony.
The 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.
