National Service Scheme

National Service Scheme [NSS] aims at the importance of democratic living and self-less service. The motto of NSS is “Not Me But You”. The symbol of NSS is based on the Giant Rath (Chariot) of World famous Konark Sun Temple at Orissa. There are eight bars in the wheel representing 24 hours of the day, where the NSS volunteers should be lively, active, energetic and full of spirit.
