National Service Scheme

Gulbarga University

“A Country could not progress in a desired direction until the student youth were motivated

to work for the upliftment of the villages/communities”.

National Service Scheme is an ideal value based programme for student youth. This programme was envisaged to accomplish our father of nation Mahatma Gandhiji’s long cherished desire of involving the youth in National building process.

A main objective of this scheme is personality development of the students through community service. Through NSS, the sensitization about social responsibility and national integration among the students community have been achieved to a large extent. This scheme has also proved in reducing the distance between academic institutions and communities.

The Gulbarga University had a modest beginning of NSS in 1981 with a just 2700 volunteers strength. Now the sanctioned volunteers strength of Gulbarga University till the year 2005-06 was 16000. The university acknowledges the Govt. of India and the State Govt. for being liberal in sanctioning the volunteers strength almost for six fold in a span of two decades.

Further, in recognition of the yeoman services rendered by the Gulbarga University the Govt. of Karnataka has given away the ‘Best University’ award for the year 2003-04.
