National Service Scheme

National Service Scheme is an Indian Government sponsored programme under the Department of Youth Affairs & Sports of the Government of India. It was launched in Gandhiji’s Centenary year, 1969, aimed at “Developing Student’s Personality through Community Service”.

The motto of NSS; “NOT ME, BUT YOU” expresses the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless services and appreciation of another man’s point of view and also show consideration for fellow human beings. It insists that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society as a whole.

National Service Scheme is a Nobel experiment in academic expansion. It inculcates the spirit of voluntary work among the students and teachers through sustained community interaction.


The sole aim of the NSS is to provide hands on experience to young students in delivering community service. Our college has an active NSS unit that has been undertaking many community services and outreach programs.
