The National Service Scheme was launched in Mahatma Gandhiji’s Centenary year, 1969 to develop the student’s personality through community service. As a part of the academic programmes National Service Scheme (NSS) has been functioning as a regular feature in the realm of our university education.
The overall objective of the scheme is to serve the community through which the objective is to be achieved. It is a student–centered programme in which projects are implemented by the NSS volunteers in the community in close collaboration with the clientele community and thereby it provides vast scope for the students’ interaction with the people. While interacting with the community the students learn many things, which they cannot learn from theory classes. Thus the scheme is designed to develop the human soul in a way, as the student is mentally shaped to fit into the society to which he also belongs and will continue to live in.
“Not for Me,But You”
The symbol of the National Service Scheme, as appearing on this page of this Manual is based on 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 the movement in life across time and space.
The design of the symbol, a simplified form of the Sun-chariot wheel primarily depicts movement. The wheel signifies the progressive cycle of life. It stands for continuity as well as NSS SYMBOL
