By doing so, volunteers learn from villages peoples that how to lead a good life despite inadequate resources. it also provides help in natural and man-made disasters by giving food, clothes and first aid to disaster victims.


The motto of National Service Scheme is NOT ME BUT YOU


The idea of involving students in the task of NSS dates back to the times of Mahatma Gandhi who tried to impress upon his student audience that they should always keep before them their supreme responsibility. The first duty of the students should be to prepare themselves for final dedication to the service of the community on whose back they were resting and not to indulge in intellectual luxury. He advised them to form a living contact and exhorted them to do something positive so that the life of the village might be raised to higher material and moral levels. The scheme has been so effective due to the fact that it is a low investment and high dividend scheme that special emphasis has been laid on NSS in the national policy.
