National Service Scheme (NSS)

National Service Scheme (NSS)

The National service scheme, popularly known as NSS was launched in Mahatma Gandhiji’s centenary year, 1969. It aimed at developing student’s personality through community service. The cardinal principle of NSS programme is that it is organized by the students themselves, and both students and teachers through their combined participation in community service, get a sense of involvement in the tasks of nation building.

NSS is a value based youth movement which links campus with community and provides an opportunity to the students for their overall personality development through community service. In today’s scenario NSS is one of the major youth movements to retain our social values and cultural heritage.

The motto of National Service Scheme is ‘NOT ME BUT YOU’. This reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service. It shows that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of society on the whole.


The symbol of the National Service Scheme is based on the wheel of the Konark Sun Temple situated in Orissa. The wheels of the Sun Temple portray the creation & signify the movement in life across time and space. It signifies the progressive cycle of life as well as implies the continuous striving of NSS for social transformation and up liftment.


The NSS symbol is embossed on the NSS badge. The eight bars represent 24 hours of day. It reminds to be in readiness for service of the nation. The Red color indicates the active energy and high spirit. The navy blue color indicates the contribution shared for the welfare of the mankind.
