Implementation of NSS Programmes

NSS Unit
An institution is allotted NSS units according to the strength of students. It is expected that the institution will provide necessary facilities for the successful running of the NSS unit as it is a part of the institution.

Administrative structure
At University level, every University has an NSS Cell to supervise and coordinate NSS Programme in Colleges affiliated to it. The Universities having strength of more than 10000 NSS volunteers have full time Programme Coordinators. The Universities having strength of less than 10000 NSS volunteers have part time programme coordinators.

Enrollment of Student Volunteers
The NSS volunteers will be enrolled from the first and second year degree-class students. Preference is given to the students who have worked as NSS volunteers at undergraduate as well as +2 levels also.
(a) Students belonging to minority communities, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes should be encouraged to participate in NSS. They should be given due representation where more students desire to join NSS.
(b) In co-educational colleges, the girls should be motivated to join NSS.
(c) The students from foreign countries studying in Indian universities should also be encouraged to join NSS so that they may share the experiences of national reconstruction and community work.
(d) NCC cadets will not be allowed to join NSS. Similarly NSS volunteers will not participate in NCC or any other youth organization as long as they are in NSS. Same restrictions will apply to the NSS Programme Officers also.
