A Brief History of N.S.S

Ever since independent, there has been growing awareness of the desirability of involving students in National Service Scheme. The first education commission (1950) recommended the introduction of National Service by students on a voluntary basis. Subsequently on the basis of suggestion made bay then Prime Minister Pandit Nehru, a committee was appointed under the chairmanship of Dr. C D Deshmukh to prepare a scheme for compulsory National Service by students prior to their admission for degree courses. Prof. K G Saiyidain who under look a study of National Service by youth in several countries, recommended that National Service may be introduced on a voluntary basis. A similar recommendation was made by the education commission appointed under the chairmanship of Dr. D S Kothari. In April 1967, the conference of state education ministers recommended that at the university stage, students could be permitted to join the NCC which was already in existence on a voluntary basis and an alternative to this could be offered to them in the form of a new programme called National Service Scheme (NSS). The conference of Vice Chancellors in September 1967 welcomed this recommendation and suggested that a special committee of Vice Chancellors should be set up to examine this question in detail. The details were soon worked out and the planning commission sanctioned on outlay of Rupees 5 crore for developing the NSS during the fourth five year plan. As a result the ministry of education introduced the NSS during 1969. The choice of timing of its introduction was remarkably auspicious as 1969 was the birth centenary year of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of our nation. NSS started its enrolment with the students of 40000 in 1969. Its coverage has increased every year. The scheme now extends to all states and universities in the country. Students, teachers, parents, guardians, persons in authority in Government, universities, colleges and the people in general now realize the need and significance of NSS. It has aroused among the students and youth an awareness of the realities of life, a better understanding and appreciation of the problems of the people.

NSS is, thus a concrete attempt in making education relevant to the needs of the society and it is purely complementary to education.
