Introduction

The National Service Scheme (NSS) is an Indian government-sponsored public service program conducted by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. Popularly known as NSS, the scheme was launched in Gandhiji's Centenary year in 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 (esp. Villages) linkage. In our college we have a NSS unit of strength 100 students, 50 students regular unit and 50 students self finance unit. For the academic year 2019-20 we are proposing the additional unit of 100 more students. Our NSS unit have been actively participating in various activities for community engagement viz Tree plantation, Pune-Pandharpur Palkhi campaign, Street act play on social themes.

Aims

The programme aims to instill the idea of social welfare in students, and to provide service to society without bias. NSS volunteers work to ensure that everyone who is needy gets help to enhance their standard of living and lead a life of dignity. In doing so, volunteers learn from people in villages how to lead a good life despite a scarcity of resources. it also provides help in natural and man-made disasters by providing food, clothing and first aid to the disaster's victims.

Objectives

Understand the community in which they work. Understand themselves in relation to their community. Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem-solving. Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility. Utilize their knowledge in finding practical solutions to individual and community problems Develop competence required for group-living and sharing of responsibilities. Gain skills in mobilizing community participation. Acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitudes. Develop capacity to meet emergencies and natural disasters. Practice national integration and social harmony.

Activities

There are two types of activities : Regular Activities(120 hours) and Annual Special Camp(120 hours). All the NSS Volunteers who have served NSS for at least 2 years and have performed 240 hours of work under NSS are entitled to a certificate from the university under the signature of the Vice-Chancellor and the Program Coordinator. The Annual camps are known as Special Camps. Camps are held annually, funded by the government of India, and are usually located in a rural village or a city suburb. Volunteers may be involved in such activities as:
Cleaning Afforestation Stage shows or a procession creating awareness of such issues as social problems, education and cleanliness Awareness Rallies
There are no predefined or preassigned tasks; it is left up to the volunteers to provide service in any way that is feasible. Camps typically last between a week and 10 days, although camps for shorter periods are also conducted by NSS.

Feedback from the Maximum Students:

GOOD



Points for Improvement:

There should be a separate allotment of time slot of three hours in a week for volunteers. Attendance of volunteers during NSS activity must be considered by respective subject teacher. NSS volunteers should not be engaged in other committee unless and until necessary, if it is needful it should be inform to NSS PO/APO.
