Education plays a vital role in the logical and consistent development of students. In order to ensure an all-rounded development in students, activities to enhance their extramural traits prove fruitful. Towards achieving this goal, the NSS Unit of the College involves the students in reaching out to the underprivileged and the needy in the society by sensitizing them about their social responsibility. The Unit helps in developing their personality, patriotic fervor and discipline in the cadets.
