National Service Scheme (NSS) is an Indian Government sponsored public service program; conducted by the Ministry of youth affairs & sports of the govt: of India. Popularly known as NSS, the scheme was launched in Gandhi’s centenary year in 1969. The motto of NSS ‘Not me but you’ declares the selfless characteristics of the scheme. It aims at developing amongst students a sense of participation in nation building through social work.
