The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Central Sector Scheme of Government of India, Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports. The ideological orientation of NSS was inspired by the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi and started in 1969. “Education through Service” is the purpose of the NSS. NEC has two NSS units, each with 100 volunteers. The first unit was started in 1984. Due to an overwhelming response from the students, a second unit was started and has been functioning since 1999. These units provide an opportunity for those who want to serve the community around the institution. NSS volunteers participated in regular social service activities like conducting blood donation camps, health awareness camps, environmental awareness camps, tree planting, creating awareness about the Clean India Campaign, campus cleaning, the self-employment programme, and visiting and donating goods to nearby orphanages and mental health homes.


To build the youth with the mind and spirit to serve society and work for the social uplift of the downtrodden masses of our nation as a movement.


“NOT ME BUT YOU”, reflects the value of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service.
