OBJECTIVE: TO DEVELOPE THE PERSONALITY OF STUDENTS THROUGH COMMUNITY SERVICE.
To bring the much-needed change, National Service Scheme (NSS) with the Motto, “NOT ME, BUT YOU” play a vital role. This scheme upholds selfless service and consideration for fellow human beings as well as underlines the message that welfare of an individual ultimately depends on the welfare of the society as a whole. One of the main objectives of NSS is to develop the personality of the students through community service. NSS provides students a platform to widen awareness and to develop skill to exercise democratic leadership and knowledge about the social realities by engaging them in creative and constructive social work.
