National Service Scheme (NSS)     
The National Service owes its origin to the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi, Who believed that the first duty of the students was not to treat their period of  study as an opportunity for intellectual luxury, but to prepare themselves for final dedication in the service of society. In the post-independence era, the University Grants commission headed by Dr. S. radhakrishan recommended introduction of National Service Scheme in the academic institutions on a voluntary basis with a view to developing health contacts between the students and teachers on the one hand and establishing a constructive likage between the campus and the community on the other hand.                                                  
The idea was considered by policy makers and committees like the Central Advisory Board of Education (1950), National Service Committee (1959) and the Education Commisssion headed by Dr. D.S. Kothari (1964-66). In 1958, the then Prime Minister Pandit  Jawaharlal nehru in his letter to the Chief Ministers, had also mooted the idea of having social servie as  a prerequisite for graduation. the Education Ministers Conference of 1959, the Vice Chancellors Conference of 1967 and the Conference of Student Representatives of the universities and institutions of higher learning convened  by the Ministry of Education and the Universities Grant Commission also unanimously declared that national service could be a powerful instrument for national integration. And finally, on September 24, Gandhi Centenary year (1969), the Union Education Minister Dr. V.K.R.V. rao, launched the NSS programmme in 37 universities covering all states.
