NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME
National Service Scheme (NSS) was introduced in 1969 with the primary objective of developing the personality and character of the student youth through voluntary community service. ‘Education through Service’ is the purpose of the NSS. The ideological orientation of the NSS is inspired by the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi.
The motto of the NSS is "NOT ME BUT YOU ". This expresses the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other man's point of view and also to show consideration for fellow human beings.
The College has 2 units with a strength of 200 volunteers. Every student member of NSS should serve for at least two years with 120 hours of engagement in community service, per year, excluding annual camps. At the end of two years of satisfactory service, every student member will receive the NSS Certificate, which is considered as equivalent to a diploma in Social Service.
NSS aims at developing the following qualities/ competencies among the volunteers:
- Understand the community in which they work
- Understand themselves in relation to their community
- Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem solving
- Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility
- Utilize their knowledge in finding practical solutions to individual and community problems
- Develop competence required for group-living and sharing of responsibilities
- Gain skills in mobilizing community participation
- Acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitudes
- Develop capacity to meet emergencies and natural disasters and
- Practice national integration and social harmony
NSS attempts to establish meaningful linkages between ‘Campus and Community’, ‘College and Village’ and ‘Knowledge and Action’.
THE NSS BADGE PROUD TO SERVE THE NATION
All the youth volunteers who opt to serve the nation through the NSS led community service wear the NSS badge with pride and a sense of responsibility towards helping needy. The Konark wheel in the NSS badge having 8 bars signifies the 24 hours of a day, reminding the wearer to be ready for the service of the nation round the clock i.e. for 24 hours. Red colour in the badge signifies energy and spirit displayed by the NSS volunteers. The Blue colour signifies the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind.

The Citizen Consumer Club of AIMAN College of Arts & Science for Women is an initiative taken to enhance awareness amongst the student community about the rights and responsibilities of a consumer.
CONSUMER AND CONSUMER RIGHTS:
A Person who buys any goods or services for a consideration which has been paid or promised or partly paid and partly promised or under any system of deferred payment is a Consumer.
A person who obtains goods for resale or for any commercial purposes will not be a Consumer. However, if such goods are brought by a person exclusively for the purpose of earning his livelihood by means of self-employment then such a person will be considered as a Consumer.
OBJECTIVES OF CITIZEN CONSUMER CLUB:
Our vision of markets in India, where consumers are careful and vigilant while manufacturers are responsible and ethical, guides us. The objectives of our mission would be:
- Bring awareness and realization about duties and responsibilities as Citizens of India.
- Spread awareness about the rights and responsibilities of Citizens and Consumers as provided in the Constitution of India, Consumer Protection Act, 1986 and other Indian Laws.
- To enable students to work together as a team with local communities and develop in to caring, responsible and honest citizens.
- Mobilize and instill right-consciousness, confidence to question violations of citizen and consumer rights and fight for justice.
- Impart knowledge about real life situations and to enable to development of skills to handle citizen and consumer issues.
- Instill concern for environment around us as citizens and consumers and sustainable consumption habits.
DUTIES OF A MEMBER:
- To learn and follow the traits of a responsible citizen .
- To disseminate information gained through the club among fellow students, parents, and other people in the community.
- To organize and actively participate citizen building and consumer protection programmes being organized by the club as well as in their locality, mobilizing general public.
- To observe all important international and national days especially National Consumer Day (24th December) and World Consumer Rights Day (15th March).
- To treat all fellow citizens with care, concern and responsibility.
CONSUMER RIGHTS VIOLATION:
Consumers in India are largely ignorant of rules, laws and codes. They are also unaware of their rights. A vast majority are also illiterates in many backward districts and states. Hence, dishonest producers and retailers cheat such unsuspecting and ignorant people without difficulty. Hence, consumer welfare is in a state far from desirable. Following are common violations of consumer rights:
(1) Under weighing (2) Adulteration (3) Not providing proper bill (4) Poor quality goods/spoilt/damaged goods (5) Poor maintenance (6) Cheating on contract terms / hidden clauses in contract (7) Price higher than Maximum Retail Price on cover (MRP) (8) Forcing / misleading into buying unwanted goods (9) Misleading advertisements, especially aimed at children (10) Selling goods whose expiry date is over (11) Bogus companies, who cannot be contacted after sales (12) Overcharging of interest especially in credit purchase (13) Dangerous, hazardous or unsafe goods. (14) Deficient or discourteous service.
The list is endless. Now, how do we fight against these violations and get justice? Consumer Beware! We have to be vigilant, cautious and intelligent. The Teacher-Coordinator must also use case studies to illustrate each type of violation and ask students to list violations that they or their parents have experienced or are still faced with. Voluntary Consumer Organizations’ representative and Coordinating Agencies can share their experiences with students.
Consumer Rights are many (as laid down in the Art and UN Convention)
- i) Right to Safety
- iii) Right to choice
- v) Right to redressal
- vii) Right to Healthy Environment
World Consumer Rights Day is celebrated based on former American President John.F.Kennedy’s announcement of March 15th as Consumer Rights Day on March 15th 1962.
Subsequently in the year 1973, March 15th was proclaimed as world Consumer Rights Day.
Students may be asked to explain what each right means to them. Voluntary Consumer Organizations representatives can highlight with examples.
National Consumer day is celebrated on December 24th every year as the Consumer Protection Act 1986 came into force on 24.12.1986 across India.
