The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Central Sector Scheme of Government of India, Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports which commenced from 1969. The main goal of the NSS is to motivate and to train young students in the field of community service. The NSS scheme is implemented through various institutions of higher learning and our college too has implemented the NSS scheme to motivate students to take part in various government led community service activities & programmes.

Motto: The motto of National Service Scheme is NOT ME BUT YOU Benefits of Being a NSS Volunteer: A NSS volunteer who takes part in the community service programme would either be a college level or a senior secondary level student.
