NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME

Motto of NSS

“Not Me, But You”
The National Service Scheme (NSS) is an Indian government-sponsored public service program conducted by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. Popularly known as NSS, the scheme was launched in Gandhiji’s Centenary year in 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 purpose of establishing this National Service Scheme in our college campus is to create strong social awareness among the students, imparts personality development to its members through study & work in the camps. There are four units (3 Units for Male Students and 1 for Female Students) of NSS are actively functioning in the college campus. The strength of each unit is 100. Our faculty members Dr. P. Krishnan (Unit – I), Dr. R. Gunasekaran (Unit –II), Prof. C. Samivel (Unit –III) and Prof. A. M. J. Mohanakumari (Unit –IV) are acting as a Programme Officers of our NSS Units.

The main objectives of National Service Scheme are:

  • Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem-solving
  • Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility
  • Utilize their knowledge in finding practical solutions to individual and community.
  • Develop competence required for group-living and sharing of responsibilities
  • Gain skills in mobilizing community participation
