The NSS was launched on 24 September 1969, the birth centenary year of the Father of our Nation Mahatma Gandhi to whom social service was almost a religion. NSS is a voluntary association of Students and Teachers in Colleges at UG level. The principle of the NSS programme is to get a sense of involvement in the task of Nation Building through community service.


  1. To enable the students to understand the community in which they work.
  2. To understand themselves in relation to their community.
  3. To identify the needs and problems of the community and the solution to them.
  4. To develop competence required for group living and sharing responsibilities.
  5. To acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitude.
  6. To encourage national integration and develop the capacity to meet emergencies and national disasters.


The motto or watchword of the National Service Scheme is 'NOT ME BUT YOU'. This reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other person's point of view.


  1. The Konark Sun Temple Rath wheel in the symbol has eight bars which represent the 24 hours of the day.
  2. The badge reminds the wearer to be in readiness for service of the nation round the clock i.e., for 24 hours.
  3. The Red colour in the badge indicates the NSS volunteers boldness i.e. liveliness, activeness, energetic and full of high spirit.
  4. The navy blue colour indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind.
