National Service Scheme (NSS)

Abiding by the motto, 'Not me but you", the NSS volunteers enthusiastically participate in the activities. Youth acquire leadership qualities and experience to work at different community levels.

Since the establishment of the College in 2007, the NSS unit has been functioning with full vigour and enthusiasm. It aims at developing amongst students a sense of participation in nation building through Social Work. This deepens understanding of the social environment and enriches his/her personality through actual participation in day-to-day life of the society. This process of learning is not only a desirable supplement to the classroom education but develops in the student a sense of responsibility, tolerance and cooperation. The NSS plays a vital role in the development of the latent aspects of the student's personality.
