National Service Scheme is a student-centered programme and it is complementary to education. It is a noble experiment in academic extension. It inculcates the spirit of voluntary work among students and teachers through sustained community interaction. It brings our academic institutions closer to the society. It is a link between the campus and community, the college and village, knowledge and action. The overall aim of NSS is the Personality Development of students through community service. It gives an extension dimension to Higher Education system and orients the student youth to community service.
The motto of NSS is ‘NOT Me But You’. This reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other person’s point of view and also to show consideration for fellow human beings.
The first unit of the National Service Scheme Unit No.72 was started in 2008, and the second unit No.47 in 2010. Admission is open to I DC and II DC students only.
The duration of the program is two years. In order to become eligible for the NSS certificate and grace marks, volunteers must put in 240 hours of regular activities and attend a 10-day work camp.
