National Service Scheme (NSS) as a part of the academic programmes and has been functioning as a regular feature in the realm of our university education. The overall objective of the scheme is service to the community through which the objective is to be achieved. It is a student–centred programme in which projects are implemened by the NSS volunteers in the community in close collaboration with the clientele community and thereby it provides vast scope for the students’ interaction with the people.
While interacting with the community the students learn many things which they cannot learn from theory classes. Thus the scheme is aimed at developing the human soul in such a way as the student is mentally shaped to fit into the society to which he also belongs and will continue to live in.
