 History and current status  of NSS (National Service Sceme):
The Education Commission headed by Dr. D.S. Kothari (1964-66) recommended that students at all stages of education should be associated with some form of social service. This was taken into account by the State Education Ministers during their conference in April 1967 and they recommended that at the school, college, university stage, students could be offered to them in the form of a new programme called the National Service Scheme (NSS). National Service Scheme (NSS) was finally launched during Gandhi Centenary year on 24th September, 1969 in India. National Service Scheme, under the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports Govt. of India is successfully running with about 3.86 million student youth enrolled in 41,442 NSS units spread over through 396 Universities/ +2 Councils, 16,331 Colleges/ Technical Institutions and 28,621 Senior Secondary Schools across the country
