Aims & Objectives
NSS aims to inculcate social welfare in students and to provide selfless service to society. The main objective of the association is to arouse social consciousness among students to work for the underprivileged and marginalized sections of our society. It enables the students to identify the needs and solution to the problems of the community to which they belong. It facilitates not only to develop competence required for group living and sharing responsibilities but also to acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitude.
The motto or watchword of National Service Scheme 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 being. The aim of NSS is to demonstrate this motto in day-to-day programmes.
