National Service Scheme, popularly known as NSS, is a student-centered programme that was launched in 1969, henceforth creating a link between the campus and community, the college and village, knowledge and action. The overall aim of NSS is the Personality Development of students through community service. It aims at inculcating amongst the volunteers a spirit of team-work, service to the community and character building that ultimately leads to the development of their personality. The motto of NSS is ‘Not Me; But You’. This reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other person’s point of view and also to show consideration for fellow human beings.
The symbol of the NSS is based on the ‘Rath’ wheel of the Konark Sun Temple situated in Orissa. It portrays the cycle of creation, preservation, and release, and signifies the movement in life across time and space. It stands for community and change and implies the continuous striving of National Service Scheme for social transformation & upliftment.
