National Service Scheme (NSS)

              National Service Scheme, under the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Govt. of India, popularly known as NSS was launched in Gandhiji's Birth Centenary Year 1969, in 37 Universities involving 40,000 students with primary focus on the development of personality of students through community service. Today, NSS has more than 3.2 million student volunteers on its roll spread over 298 Universities and 42 (+2) Senior Secondary Councils and Directorate of Vocational Education all over the country. From its inception, more than 3.75 crores students from Universities, Colleges and Institutions of higher learning have benefited from the NSS activities, as student volunteers.


             The motto of NSS: “NOT ME NOT YOU, BUT WE”. This reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service.

The main ives of NSS are to:

    Understand the community in which they work
    Understand themselves in relation to their community
    Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem solving process
    Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility
    Utilize their knowledge in finding practical solution to individual and community problems
    Develop competence required for group living and sharing of responsibilities
    Gain skills in mobilizing community participation
    Acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitude
    Develop capacity to meet emergencies and natural disasters
    Practice national integration and social harmony

The Directorate of Technical Education introduced this scheme in all Polytechnics in the year 1998.

        In each academic year, many service oriented programmes are organized by the NSS unit of our Institution under the guidelines of NSS cell, DTE, Bangalore. The programmes include:

    Maintenance of roads
    Literacy classes
    Water conservation
    Plastic eradication
    Tree plantation
    Campus cleaning

        These programmes aim to inculcate social welfare in students and to provide service to the society without bias. NSS volunteers work to ensure that everyone who is needy gets help to enhance their standard of living and lead a life of dignity. In doing so, volunteers learn from people in villages how to lead a good life despite a scarcity of resources. NSS also provides help in natural and man-made disasters by providing food, clothing and first aid to the disaster victims.
