Profile


The National Service Scheme, popularly known as NSS, is a public service program, sponsored by the Govt. of India and conducted by the Department of Youth Affairs and Sports, Govt. of India. The scheme was launched in the Gandhiji’s Centenary year, 1969.It’s a purely voluntary association of young people in School Level (preferably H.S. +2 Level), College Level & University Level, working for a campus-community linkage.

         Its aim is to develop the student's personality through community service, as well as to inculcate social welfare in students and to provide service to society without bias. NSS volunteers work to ensure that everyone who is needy gets help to enhance their living status and lead a life of dignity. In doing so, volunteers learn from villagers how to lead a good life despite of a scarcity of resources. It also provides help in natural and man-made disasters by providing food, clothing and first aid to the disaster victims.

The Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Govt. of India, is the nodal Authority, which works with state-level NSS cells, which are solely responsible to the respective State Governments. Within states, most government and government-aided institutions have volunteer of NSS units. Like this, the Ambedkar College, Fatikroy, Unakoti, Tripura has a NSS Unit, comprising of 90 volunteers.

Like the other Institutions, the NSS Unit of this College is involved in two types of works in the whole year, namely –

  1. Regular Activities: - In regular activities, the volunteers are involved in different social activities, like college cleaning,  jungle cutting, Bazar cleaning, hospital cleaning etc.
  2. Special Camp: - Special camps are held once in a financial year. There are no predefined or preassigned tasks in the special camp; it is left up to the volunteers to provide service in any way that is feasible. Generally it contains a camp held at any undeveloped villages or the community area, to provide them helps in the upgradation of their livings. The Camps typically last between a week or 10 days, although camps for shorter periods are also conducted by NSS.

FUND  : - To perform both of the regular activities or the special camp, each Institute requires fund and that fund was previously provided by the Central Govt. and State Govt. But from the financial year 2016-17, only the Central Govt. provide the fund. The fund provided to our college for the last few years are given below –
