About National Service Scheme:-

Popularly known as NSS, the scheme was launched in Gandhiji‘s Centenary year, 1969. Aimed at developing student‘s personality through community service. NSS, is a voluntary association of young people in Colleges, Universities and at +2 level working for a campus-community linkage.

The cardinal principle of the NSS programme is that it is organised by the students themselves, and both students and teachers through their combined participation in community service, get a sense of involvement in the tasks of nation building.

Year of Establishment:-

Motto of NSS:-


The motto or watchword of the 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 beings. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of society on the whole. Therefore, it should be the aim of the NSS to demonstrate this motto in its day-to-day programme.
