NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME

 

The motto of the National Service Scheme is “NOT ME BUT YOU”. This expresses the essence of democratic living and upholds the need of selfless service and apreciation of other man’s point of view and also to show consideration for fellow human beings. It underlines the fact that welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent upon the welfare of the society as a whole. And as such, the N.S.S. demonstrates its motto of development of the personality of the students through community service in its day-to-day programmes. It arouses consciousness among the students in respect of constructive social activities, national integration, community living, eradication of literacy, improvement of hygienic condition, First Aid, appreciation of the dignity of labour, propagation of family planning, small savings, tree plantation and forestation, combating calamities like famine, flood, drought and earthquake and last but not the least, mobilizing available resources for the development of the community as a whole.
