The National Service Scheme (NSS) is an Indian government sector public service program conducted by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. The idea of National Service Scheme was first proposed by Major General Jagannath Rao Bhonsle. Later, the University Grants Commission, headed by S. Radhakrishnan, officially recommended the introduction of voluntary national service in academic institutions. Finally, on 24 September 1969 (Gandhiji’s Centenary Year), then the Union Education Minister Shri.V.K.R.V. Rao launched the NSS at 37 universities in several states of India. 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 (esp. Villages) linkage.

The National Service Scheme (NSS) was launched in the year-1983 at our college. Our college currently has two units, Unit-I is for boys and Unit-II for girls. At most 100 students can participate in each unit. We organize various programs throughout the year. Students can also develop their social responsibilities and various talents through these programmes along with studies.

Symbol of NSS:



  • The symbol for the NSS has been based on the Giant Rath Wheel of the world-famous Konark

Sun temple (The Black Pagoda) situated in Orissa, India.

  • The wheel portrays the cycle of creation, preservation and release.

It signifies the movement in life across time and space.

  • The eight bars in the wheel represent 24 hours of a day.
  • The red colour indicates that the volunteer is full of young blood that is lively, active, energetic and full of high spirit.
  • The navy blue colour indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind.
  • It stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS for social transformation and uplift.
