National Service Scheme (NSS)


The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Central Sector Scheme under the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Government of India. It provides opportunities for students in technical, undergraduate, and postgraduate institutions, to engage in community service activities.
