Formed in 1969, the ultimate goal of the National Service Scheme is to foster national integration and social harmony. Its motto 'Not Me, But You' is based on the idea that the welfare of the individual is directly related to the welfare of society. The symbol of the NSS, the giant Rath Wheel stands for continuity as well as change and symbolizes the continuous striving of the NSS for social change.
Through a wide range of service schemes, the NSS helps students to understand the community in which they work, to identify its needs and problems and to use their knowledge to find practical solutions to individual and community problems. The NSS creates in the students a sense of social and civic responsibility and fosters over all personality development and leadership qualities.
