The National Service Scheme was introduced in the College from the Academic Session 1984 â€“ 85 with an aim and objective of developing the studentsâ€™ personality through community service and participation. The very purpose of N.S.S is to engage the students in creative and constructive social work and to gain new experiences from the social realities which help them to understand life in true spirit and to enrich their personalities. In this College we had three units of N.S.S two for boysâ€™ and one for girlsâ€™ operating under the direct guidance and supervision of N.S.S Bureau, Utkal University, Vanivihar, Bhubaneswar. But now one N.S.S unit (Boys) is operating in the College and Mr.Gurucharan Sethi, Lect.in-Sociology is acting as Programme Officer of this unit. The N.S.S. Advisory Committee is formed to prepare plans and programmes of N.S.S for each Academic Session and to evaluate the work of the units at the end of the session.
Selection of volunteers are made among the students for each unit. The newly selected volunteers are given orientation training by the Programme Officers and Resource Persons and person having social service background.
