National Service Scheme Unit-205

National Service Scheme was launched in to the stream of higher Education on September 24th 1969(the birth centenary year of Mahatma Gandhi) by Sri.V.K.R.V Rao then union Education Minister, after very long discussion and deliberation among popular national leaders and eminent educationalists to make education more realistic and community oriented, and to use the youth power to build our society.

Overall Objective

Overall objective is to give an extension dimension to the higher education system. College, +2 level students have a tendency to get alienated from the village/slum masses which constitute the majority of the population of our country. Educated youth who are expected to take the reins of administration in future are found to be unaware of the problems of the village/slum community. Therefore it is necessary to arouse the social conscience of the students and to provide them an opportunity to work with the people in the villages/slums.

Specific Objectives

To understand themselves in relation to the community/society;
Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem solving process;
