National Service Secheme

National Service Scheme  (NSS) is an Indian government sponsored programme under the ministry of
youth affairs and sports, GOI. It was started in 1969.

History

After independence, the University Grand Commission headed by Dr. S. Radhakrishna, recommended
introduction of national service in the academic institution on a voluntary basis. This idea was again consid-
ered by central advisory board of education (CABE) in January 1950. In 1958, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in his
letters to chief ministers mooted the idea of having social service as prerequisite for graduation.
In 1959,a draft outline of this schema was placed before the conference of the education minister of
states. The conference agreed upon the urgent need for trying out a workable schema for national service. As
A result, national service committee was appointed under the chairmanship of Dr. C.D. Deshmukh on 28
August, 1959 to make concrete suggestion in this direction.

In 1960 government of India appointed K.G. Saiyiddin to study how the national service by student
implemented in the country. Later, the education commission headed by Dr.D.S.Kothari (1964-66) recom-
mended that the student at every stage of education should be associated with some form of social services.
This was taken into account by the education minister of states during their conference in April 1967 and they
recommended that the student at the university stage could join the national service scheme (NSS).

In May 1969, a conference of students Representative of the universities and institutions of higher
education convened by ministry of education and the university grand commission also unanimously opined
that the National Service Scheme could be a powerful instrument for national integration. On 24 September
1969,then union Education Minister D.V.K.R.V. Rao launch National Service Scheme in 37 universities
covers all states and also covers +2 learning institutions in many states.
