About National Service Scheme (NSS)
Popularly known as NSS, the scheme was launched in Gandhiji’s Centenary year, 1969. Aimed at developing student’s personality through community service. NSS, is a voluntary association of young people in Colleges, Universities and at +2 level working for a campus-community linkage.
The cardinal principle of the NSS programme is that it is organised by the students themselves, and both students and teachers through their combined participation in community service, get a sense of involvement in the tasks of nation building.
National Service Scheme was started in Mount Carmel College (Autonomous) in the year 1972. The services of NSS unit of MCC over the years have been highly commended.
Objectives of NSS:
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 and appreciation of the other person’s point of view and also to show consideration for fellow human beings. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of society on the whole. Therefore, it should be the aim of the NSS to demonstrate this motto in its day-to-day programme.
“I solemnly to work with dedication, serve and strengthen freedom and integrity of the nation. I further affirm that I shall never resort to violence and that all differences and disputes relating to the religion, language, region or political or economic graveness shall be settled by peaceful and constitutional manner.”
Enrollment in NSS:
NSS is a voluntary scheme. NSS scheme starts from 11th Standard onwards. At college level the NSS volunteers will be enrolled from the first and second year degree-class students. The students from foreign countries studying in Indian universities can also join NSS so that they may share the experiences of national reconstruction and community work. NCC cadets will not be allowed to join NSS. Similarly NSS volunteers will not participate in NCC or any other youth organisation as long as they are in NSS.
An NSS volunteer needs to devote a total of 240 hours social service in two years duration. Every year, a NSS volunteer has to devote 20 hrs. of orientation and 100 hrs. of community service.
To enroll as NSS volunteer, contact the NSS Programme Officer of our college. Enrollment in NSS is free.
The NSS volunteers on successful completion of the required hours of service are issued a certificate. NSS volunteers are exempted from doing credit course if they attend eight days special camp and they will get six credits. NSS volunteers can get some weightage during admissions in higher studies and other benefits as decided by the institutions/university.
