National Service Scheme
भारत में छात्रों को राष्ट्रीय सेवा के कार्य में शामिल करने का विचार राष्ट्रपिता महात्मा गांधी के समय का है। केंद्रीय थीम जिसे उन्होंने छात्रों के लिए बार-बार जोर दिया वह यह थी कि उन्हें अपने समक्ष सदैव अपनी सामाजिक जिम्मेदारी रखनी चाहिए छात्रों का प्रथम कर्तव्य उनके अध्ययन की अवधि को केवल बौद्धिक ज्ञान तक ही सीमित न रखकर स्वयं को ऐसे व्यक्तियों की सेवा में समर्पित करना है जिन्होंने राष्ट्र की वस्तुओं और सेवाओं के साथ हमारे देश को आवश्यक चीजें प्रदान की है जो कि समाज के लिए अति आवश्यक है। डॉ. राधाकृष्णन की अध्यक्षता में विश्वविद्यालय अनुदान आयोग और कोठारी (1964-66) शिक्षा आयोग की सिफारिशों के ADDHAR PAR 24 सितम्बर, 1969 को तत्कालनी शिक्षामंत्री डॉ. वी. के. आर.वी. राव ने सभी राज्यों को शामिल करते हुए 37 विश्वविद्यालयों में एनएसएस कार्यक्रम आरंभ किया और साथ ही राज्यों के मुख्यमंत्रियों को उनके सहयोग और सहायता का अनुरोध किया। यह उपयुक्त था कि कार्यक्रम गांधी शताब्दी वर्ष के दौरान आरंभ किया जाए चूंकि गांधी जी ने भारत के युवाओं को भारत की स्वतंत्रता के आंदोलन में तथा हमारे राष्ट्र के निचले पायदान वाले लोगों के समाजिक उत्थान में भाग लेने के लिए प्रेरित किया था।
In India, the idea of involving students in the task of national service dates back to the times of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation. The central theme which he tried to impress upon his student audience time and again was that they should always keep before them, their social responsibility. After the recommendations of The University Grants Commission headed by Dr. Radhakrishnan and Kothari education commission (1964-66), Indian Government launched the NSS programme on 24 September, 1969. It was appropriate that the programme was started during the Gandhi Centenary Year as it was Gandhi Ji who inspired the Indian youth to participate in the movement for India’s independence and the social upliftment of the downtrodden masses of our nation.

The Motto of NSS "Not Me But You", reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for self-less service. NSS helps the student’s development & appreciation to other person's point of view and also show consideration towards other living beings. The philosophy of the NSS is a good doctrine in this motto, which underlines on the belief that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society as a whole and therefore, the NSS volunteers shall strive for the well-being of the society.
The logo for the NSS has been based on the giant Rath Wheel of the world famous Konark Sun Temple (The Black Pagoda) situated in Orissa, India. The Red & Blue colors contained in the logo motivate the NSS Volunteers to be active & energetic for the nation-building social activities. The wheel portrays the cycle of creation, preservation and release and signifies the movement in life across time and space, the wheel thus stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS for social change.
The NSS logo is embossed on the badge of NSS. The eight bars in the wheel of NSS logo represent the 24 hours of a day. The red color indicates that the volunteer is full of young blood that is lively, active, energetic and full of high spirit. The navy blue color indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind.
The scheme is now a central sector scheme to organize Regular Activities (RA) and special Camping Programmes (SCPs). An amount of Rs.250/-per volunteer per annum is released towards Regular Activities (RAs) and Rs.450/- per volunteer per Special Camping Programme (SCP) which is of 7-days duration to be organized in the adopted villages/urban slums. In addition, the Government of India provides 100% financial assistance to run NSS Regional Directorates, State NSS Cells and Empanelled Training Institute (ETI).
