    A team of dedicated disciples and contemporaries of Mahatma Gandhi,

    Dr.T.S.Soundaram and Dr.G.Ramachandran, established Gandhigram Rural Institutions in

    1947. The Gandhigram Rural Institute was created to promote rural development. Today, it

    has become a nationally and internationally recognized university for its contribution to rural

    higher education.

    The NSS (National Service Scheme) Cell in Gandhigram Rural Institute – Deemed

    University (GRI) has organized several programmes to tune the personality of the student

    volunteers and make them responsible for rural development since 1979-80. The unique

    feature of NSS in GRI is that all the students studying Diploma, Under Graduate, and Post

    Graduate (except one year programmes) are NSS volunteers. There are 19 NSS units in the

    GRI NSS Cell. Shramadhan, tree plantation in campus and in the adopted villages, and blood

    donation to the people admitted in the Kasturba Hospital, Gandhigram, and Government

    Hospital, Dindigul, are regular features. Other important Regular Programmes organized

    were AIDS Awareness, Awareness Rally on Consumer Rights, Awareness Rally on Save Oil

    & Gas for Better Living in association with Petroleum Conservation Research Association,

    Awareness on Health and Hygiene, Encouragement to NSS volunteers to participate in state

    level programmes and other programmes for a wholesome personality development of the


    Apart from the above, other innovative programmes organized by the NSS, GRI

    include the formation and running of Consumer Clubs in 39 schools in Dindigul District. The

    Tamil Nadu State AIDS Control Society sponsored three units of Red Ribbon Clubs (RRC)

    which are also functioning in GRI for the promotion of health awareness among the

    volunteers. Though B.Ed. programme is not covered under NSS, a separate RRC unit is

    created for this programme. For the successful organization of the NSS Regular and Special

    Camping programmes necessary support is enlisted from village Youth Clubs, SHGs, Gram

    Panchayats, District Administration, Rotary Clubs, leading NGOs, Tamil Nadu State NSS

    Cell, NSS Regional Office, Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports-Government of India,

    Tamil Nadu State AIDS Control Society, Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Protection

    Department-Government of Tamil Nadu, and Petroleum Conservation and Research

    Association (PCRA).

    The NSS Cell of GRI has also conducted many special Camping programmes

    focusing on the special camp themes during the period 2010-2015. These camps were

    conducted in the service villages of GRI and other nearby villages in Dindigul District. The

    detailed list of activities carried out under regular programme and special camping from the

    academic year 2010 to 2015 are presented in the consolidated report.
