National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Scheme of Government of India – Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports. NSS provides opportunity for students to serve the Nation through community service. NSS Scheme was launched on 24th September in 1969, by then Union Education Minister Dr. V.K.R.V. Rao, to commemorate the 100th birth anniversary year of the Father of Nation.

This day is celebrated every year as “NSS Day”. It provides opportunity to the student youth of 11th & 12th Class of schools at +2 Board level and student youth of Technical Institution, Graduate & Post Graduate at colleges and University level of India to take part in various government led community service activities & programs, with a sole aim of providing hands on experience to young students in delivering community service.

NSS Motto

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 program.
