National Service Scheme (NSS) is a permanent youth programme under the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India and funded by Government of Tamil Nadu and Government of India in the ratio of 5 : 7. The motto of NSS is "Not me but you". It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society as a whole. This expresses the essence of democratic living and upholds the need of selfless service and appreciation of the other man's point of view and also consideration for fellow human beings.
It is a two year voluntary service where students are allowed to develop their personality through social service. NSS volunteers have helped in the Plantation project in college where over 6400 saplings were planted. Apart from that, camps are held in nearby villages where attempts are made to improve conditions for the villagers. Blood donation camps, computer coaching for school children, cleaning up temples and various such activities fill the calendar of an NSS volunteer.
