National Service Scheme was launched in to the stream of higher Education on September 24th 1969(the birth centenary year of Mahatma Gandhi) by Sri.V.K.R.V Rao then union Education Minister, after very long discussion and deliberation among popular national leaders and eminent educationalists   to make education more realistic and community oriented, and to use the youth power to build our society.

Overall Objective

Overall objective is to give an extension dimension to the higher education system. College, +2 level students have a tendency to get alienated from the village/slum masses which constitute the majority of the population of our country. Educated youth who are expected to take the reins of administration in future are found to be unaware of the problems of the village/slum community.  Therefore it is necessary to arouse the social conscience of the students and to provide them an opportunity to work with the people in the villages/slums.

Specific Objectives:

  • To understand the community/society in which they work;

  • To understand themselves in relation to the community/society;

  • Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem solving  process;

  • Develop among them a sense of social and civic responsibility;

  • Utilise 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.

NSS Motto: “NOT ME BUT YOU” which reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other persons point of view and show consideration of fellow human beings.

NSS Symbol: The symbol of NSS is based on the ‘Rath’ wheel of Konark Sun Temple in Orissa which portray the cycle of creation, preservation and release and signify the movement of life across time and space. Wheel in the NSS symbol signifies the progressive cycle of life and stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS for social transformation and upliftment.
