The National Service Scheme (NSS) is an Indian government-sponsored public service program conducted by the Department of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. 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 students joining this scheme develop many behavioral interactive skills. They visit the rural areas as NSS volunteers during the camps organized. The NSS volunteers take initiative in developing a Technocratic Environment and also help the underprivileged people to develop themselves.
