A Brief History of N.S.S

In India, the notion of involving students in the task of national service dates back to the times of Mahatma Gandhi, our father of the nation.

The first education commission(1950) recommended the introduction of national service by students on a voluntary basis. Subsequently on the basis of the suggestion made by the Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, a committee was appointed under the chairmanship of Dr. C.D Desh mukh to prepare a scheme for compulsory national service by students prior to their admission for degree course.

The response of students to the scheme has been excellent. Starting with an enrolment of 40,000 students in 1969, the coverage of N.S.S students has increased every year. Now the strength of N.S.S is one million.

Aim of N.S.S
Development of the personality of students through Community service.

To deal with the threat of HIV and AIDS, the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare under the Govt of India proposed to establish a network with Universities and educational institutions to generate awareness regarding the pandemic and to promote voluntary blood donation to ensure safe blood and implement preventive programmes on HIV/AIDS. It is initiated and supported by the Kerala State AIDS Control Society and implemented through multi-sectoral collaboration, particularly, using the services of Cadre officers of the state’s National Service Scheme (N.S.S).
