Bharat Sevak Samaj(BSS)
Bharat Sevak Samaj(BSS) was promoted by the Planning Commission, Government of India, during the first five-year plan based on the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi in order to provide a national platform for constructive work. The idea was further pushed into realisation by Pt Jawaharlal Nehru and Shri Gulzarilal Nanda and BSS came into existence on 12th August 1952. Since then, BSS has been instrumental in providing access to vocational training, ensuring legal aid to the poor, taking measures for slum development, establishing consumer redressal systems, setting up institutions for differently-abled children and so on. As of now, BSS runs several educational institutions across the length and breadth of the country, imparting vocational and skill-based education to students of all backgrounds. IIA is affiliated to BSS [Regn No.TN/7845] and follows the course system and examination pattern prescribed by the same.
