The aim of the N.S.S is to educate the students through community service and enrich their personality and deepen their understanding of the social environment in which they live. It is intended to arouse the social conscience of the community by preparing them to be useful to the society. The membership in N.S.S is voluntary and is strictly on a selective basis.

The Motto of NSS, "NOT ME BUT YOU", reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for self-less service. NSS helps the students develop appreciation to other person's point of view and also show consideration to other fellow human beings.
