Today, NSS has more than 3.2 million student volunteers on its roll spread over 298 Universities and 42 (+2) Senior Secondary Councils and Directorate of Vocational Education all over the country.
NSS has always stood up to its strong spirit of serving people keeping in mind the policy of “Not Me But You”. The belief that we must live for others is being realized through the selfless service of the NSS volunteers who gets into timely action for the uplift of the needful people of their respective localities. NSS units of the Technical Cell has always given the volunteers, a platform to serve the society and bring happiness and smile on many faces, which has sown the seeds of social commitment in many students who are otherwise kept aloof from the real challenges and torments faced by the masses in the society as a whole. NSS by its range of community service initiatives had triggered a change in the personality and attitude in the volunteers. So it is not simply an association; it’s a platform to achieve the overall abilities of every individual enrolled in the scheme.
