    National Service Scheme (NSS)-KRMU

    ‘NOT ME BUT YOU’

    The idea of involving students in national service tasks in India dates back to the times of Mahatma Gandhi. The notion was re-considered in January 1950 by the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE).

    After examining all the aspects of the matter, the board recommended teachers and students volunteer for the manual work. On September 24, 1969, the then Union Education Minister Dr. V.K.R.V. Rao, launched the NSS programme in 37 universities covering all states. He further requested the Chief Ministers of States to help and cooperate with volunteers. 

    The National Service Scheme aspires to extend the dimension of the higher education system and orient the student youth towards community service. Therefore, it is necessary to arouse the social conscience of the students and provide them opportunities to work with slum dwellers and villagers. This activity exposes them to the realities of life and brings about a change in their social perception. The motto or watchword of the National Service Scheme is: ‘NOT ME BUT YOU’. This reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service. Besides, it shows consideration for fellow human beings and appreciation for others' viewpoints. The philosophy of the NSS underlines the belief that the welfare of an individual depends on the welfare of the society. The symbol of the National Service Scheme, as appearing on the cover page of its manual demonstrates the ‘Rath’ wheel of the Konark Sun Temple situated in Orissa. These giant wheels of the Sun Temple portray the cycle of creation, preservation, and release, and signify life across time and space. 

  • Benefits of NSS Volunteer

    The National Service Scheme (NSS) is an Indian government-sponsored public service program conducted by the Department of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. Popularly known as NSS, the scheme was launched in Gandhi Ji's Centenary year, 1969.

    It allows young students to participate in various government-led community service activities & programmes. The objective of KRMU-NSS is to develop responsible personalities through community service.

    The programme aims to promote social welfare in students to serve society equally. NSS volunteers work closely with villagers and learn to live satisfactorily with limited resources. They also assist villagers with essential commodities such as food, clothing, and first-aid facilities during uncertainties. Under NSS, volunteers help the deprived section of society raise their living standard to live with dignity.
