                                                                            Two units of the National Service Scheme are functioning on our campus under two Faculty Program Officers acquainting the students with voluntary social service through participatory manual work the teachers themselves giving the lead and guidance. With "Not Me, But You", as its motto, NSS expresses the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of another man's point of view and also promotes consideration for fellow human beings. NSS strives to teach the students that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society as a whole. Therefore it seeks to demonstrate this aim in its day-to-day activities.

 The programs of the units on our campus mainly concerns personality development through social service or community service, especially in villages, where the real India lives. This exercise inculcates in them social welfare thoughts without any prejudice and in doing so the volunteers themselves learn a lot from the people in villages on how to struggle and how to lead a happy life in the extreme scarcity of resources and so on. Camps are conducted annually in rural locations for this purpose. There are no pre-defined or pre-assigned tasks. It is the volunteers' imagination to provide the service to the society in all feasible ways. The camps may typically last for a week or ten days. Many short term camps are also conducted. The major projects undertaken by our units are adoption of Village, cleaning of public places, construction and repair of roads and water sources, afforestation , literacy classes, watershed projects, plastic eradication, health camps, home for the homeless, debates, seminars and campaigns against social evils etc. The N.S.S. units of the college have successfully impressed the outside world with their dedicated and sincere efforts.
