Objectives
The objective of NSS is to develop a culture of “Not Me But You”, reflecting the essence of
democratic living and upholds the need for self-less service. NSS helps the student‟s
development and appreciation to other person’s point of view and also show consideration
towards other living beings. The philosophy of the NSS is a good doctrine in this motto,
which underlines on the belief that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on
the welfare of the society as a whole and therefore, the NSS volunteers shall strive for the
well-being of the society.
