The main objective of NSS programme is to prepare the NSS volunteers for the democratic, self-disciplined and self-reliant way of life
NSS launched in the year, 1969. Aimed at developing student's personality through community service, NSS is a voluntary association of young people in Colleges working for a campus-community linkage.NSS unit no 127, in Institute of Printing Technology and Government Polytechnic College is functioning well from the beginning itself. We are conducting regular activities through out the year and special residential camps at December vacations. We are doing social awareness campaigns, socioeconomic surveys, campus- environmental cleaning etc every year to uplift campus- social linkage. We have an intake of 100 volunteer's for our unit, 50 each from first and second year students. We can accommodate 50 volunteer's to our special residential camps.
The Motto of NSS "Not Me but You” reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for self-less service. NSS helps the students develop appreciation to other person's point of view and also show consideration to other living beings. The philosophy of the NSS is well doctrine in this motto, which underlines the belief that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society on the whole and therefore, the NSS volunteers shall strive for the well-being of the society.
The educated youth who are expected to take the reins of administration in future are found to be unaware of the problems of the village/slum community and in certain cases are indifferent towards their needs and problems. Therefore, it is necessary to arouse the social conscience of the students, and to provide them an opportunity to work with the people in the villages and slums. It is felt that their interaction with the common villagers and slum dwellers will expose them to the realities of life and bring about a change in their social perception.
