National Service Scheme (NSS)

The NSS is part of the Development of Youth Affairs and Sports under the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India. It is a voluntary organization for students and the teachers. The NSS has been introduced in colleges and universities all over India in response to the Kothari Commission’s recommendation that education should be oriented to the social needs by involving students in service to the community. The College has three units of National Service Scheme. A student volunteer who has completed 240 hrs of work and attended a special camp during the course of two years is eligible for NSS Certificate from the university. This Certificate gives weightage for higher studies and is an additional qualification for appointment in public services. One of the units is self-financing for the self financing students.
