National Service Scheme
The National Service Scheme (NSS) was officially started on 24th September 1969, to establish a meaningful linkage between the campus and the community. Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, had recognized that the country could not progress in a desired direction until the student youth were motivated to work for the upliftment of the villages/community. For Gandhiji, the villages, where majority of the population living, represent the country. Therefore for the national reconstruction and national resurgence it was deemed fit that the students and teachers should be properly sensitized and utilized for strengthening the Indian society as a whole with particular emphasis on rural community. Therefore, student youth, teachers and the community are considered as the three basic components of the National Service Scheme.
The motto of NSS "Not Me but You" reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service. NSS helps the student develop appreciation to other person's point of view and also show consideration to other living beings. The philosophy of the NSS is well doctrine in the motto which underlines on the belief that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society on the whole and their fore, the NSS volunteers shall strive for the well-being of the society.
The symbol of the NSS is based on the 'Rath' wheel of the Konark Sun Temple situated in Orissa. These giant wheels of the Sun Temple portray the cycle of creation, preservation and release, and signify the movement in life across time and space. It stands for community as well as change and implies the continuous striving of National Service Scheme for social transformation & upliftment
