National Social Service (NSS)


The National Service Scheme was launched in 1969. It aims at the involvement mainly of under-graduate students on a voluntary basis in various activities of social service and national development, which, while making a contribution to socio-economic progress would also provided opportunities to the students to understand and appreciate the problems of the community, awaken social consciousness and inculcate in them a sense of dignity of labour. There has been a great deal of enthusiasm among the students in the various programmes taken up under the scheme. At the same time, there has been a demand from several quarters that opportunities should be provided to the youth going out of the universities and colleges to engage themselves on a whole time basis for a specific period in activities of social and national service. Some attempts in this direction have been made in some States during the last few years.

KRC has two full fledged National Service Scheme (NSS) units. It is a voluntary organization open to students of all faculties. The concept behind NSS is to orient the youth to community service and arouse their social conscience; the motto being, “Not me but you”. The main aim of this scheme is service through education and personality development through service. The NSS develops social ethics; besides inculcating several human values like sincerity, honesty, discipline and compassion etc.

KRC has been actively participating in activities related to various service schemes. NSS units of the college function with the objective to develop the personality of students through community service and to bridge the gulf between the educated and the uneducated masses. The two NSS units are actively involved in the field of community service through a number of programmes like lectures, workshops as well as field activities in the sphere of population awareness, literacy, communal harmony, afforestation and environment issues, human rights and personality development of the volunteers.
