|National Service Scheme (NSS) has been introduced at University of Gujarat as a part of the academic programs and since then NSS has been functioning as a regular feature in the realm of our university education. The overall objective of the scheme is educational and service to the community is the activity through which the objective is sought to be achieved. It is a student-cantered program in which projects are implemented by the NSS volunteers in the community in close collaboration with the community and thereby it provides vast scope for the student's interaction with the people.
|National Cadet Corps aims at developing character and comradeship, as well as keenness for service and capacity for leadership in the youth. It provides military training to the youth and builds a ready reserve, which the Armed Forces could easily make use of in times of national emergency.
There are a number of incentives that motivates students to become cadets. Besides being an additional merit while seeking to join the forces or taking up other jobs, NCC also motivates cadets to perform to their best by offering scholarships, cash awards, prizes, medals, trophies etc.
Apart from service and institutional training, the cadets also participate in other actvities like Community Development, Youth Exchange Programme, Adventure Sports Training.
