National Service Scheme (NSS) is an educational programme which came into force in 1969 on the year of 100th birth anniversary of Great Mahatma Gandhi. Dr. V.K.R.V Rao, human resource minister of the time, launched the NSS programme on 24thSeptember, 1969. Personality Development through Social Service is the basic objective of NSS. National Service Scheme provides the volunteers an opportunity to understand the needs and problems of the society which would lead them to involve in the process of solvingproblems. It helps to develop social and civil responsibility among volunteers. The motto of NSS ‘Not me but you’ reflects the self -less service and appreciation of others’ point of view.
One unit of National Service scheme (includes 50 each members from both first and second year) is active in our college from 2014. It gives the members a platform to develop the social responsibility among students and also provides them an opportunity to grasp their own talents. It conducts various programmes in collaboration with various government agencies to develop social thinking and service mentality among the participants. Various programmes like home construction, road maintenance,flood relief activities, garden construction, farming activities, social survey, medical camp, various awareness programmes etc. are conducted.
The volunteers got oppertunities to attend various state and National camps and programmes. Mr.Ajo James, the NSS volunteer of our college, participated in the National level camp at Manali, Himachal pradesh in 2017. Another volunteer Anandhakrishnan M B participated in the National camp which was conducted at Varanasi, Uttar pradesh in 2019.
