National Service Scheme (NSS)

NSS is a scheme of the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports which is aims at the personality development of students. The National Service Scheme was launched in 1969 to give a new dimension to the higher education system and to guide students towards community service while they are still studying in an educational institute. NSS is a reflection of Mahatma Gandhi’s ideals which inspire the youth to participate in social upliftment and in tasks of national development. The scheme extends to all states & Universities in the country. “NOT ME BUT YOU “is the motto of NSS.
NSS aims at arousing social consciousness of the youth with an overall objective of personality development of the students through community service.

  • NSS was established in PCGEA in the year 2009-10 with the objective of identifying the needs and problems of the community and involving students and teachers in a problem-solving process to make them sensitive to society.
  • To develop a sense of social and civic responsibility among the students themselves.
  • To understand the community in which they work.
  • To acquire leadership qualities and a democratic attitude.

The mission of Rover & Ranger (Scouting) is to contribute to the education of young people through a value-based system, which includes the principles of “Be Prepared” and “Do a Good Deed Daily”.
