National Service Scheme

INTRODUCTION

National Service Scheme is an essential component which plays an important role in the educational system. The NSS units of our college function in an effective manner and offers an opportunity for all the volunteers to serve selflessly to the society in general and college in particular. The NSS programme started functioning in our college right from the year 1995 onwards. At present there are four units functioning effectively with four programme officers, four co-opted members and 400 volunteers.

Each NSS volunteer need to render her services totally for 480 hours (240 hours for regular activity and 240 hours for special camp)for the allotted period of two years. The regular activities and the special campaign programme arouse the social consciousness in the minds of the young students who are going to be the future pillars of our mother India. Every year four nearby villages are adopted and the students are offered adequate opportunities to render their services profusely by organizing a special camp for ten days. Without fail an Himalayan change is brought in all the adopted villages.

The overall aim of National Service is to serve extensively for the growth and development of the Nation through the set pattern of education and orient the students towards voluntary service. This particular way of education helps the students grow intellectually, morally, spiritually and inculcates a spontaneous social consciousness to serve the society and help for the betterment of the Nation and National Integration and become responsible individuals.
