Difference between RSS and Rashtra Sevika Samiti

Sports, physical-intellectual programs etc. are the same in both branches. The prayer of the union and the committee is different. It is harder for women to gather or come to the branch daily than men. Therefore, the branches of the committee are more weekly than daily. Time has to come out from the housework, so the time of the branches of the committee is also different ie late in the morning or often in the afternoon or evening.

The scope of Rashtra Sevika Samiti is very large. There are 3000 thousand branches across India. This committee was needed because women had limited time. She contributes to the country by assuming the responsibility of home. That is why the committee thought of a separate department that could contribute to the society. Because the members of the committee believe that an educated society is the foundation of a strong country.

If women are awakened then they will give rites to the family and members of Sanskari family will make a good country. Like the Union, the committee also has branches which are held daily and weekly. Work is done to increase the confidence of the girls who come here through physical education and intellectual development.
