National Service Scheme

College has started National Service Scheme as an option to Rashtriya Chhatrasena Yojana. National Service Scheme was started with the aim of inculcating values of self-reliance, labour dignity and community oriented life etc. The NSS unit plays an important role in organizing community service oriented activities like Blood donation camp, Tree plantation, disaster management programs, rallies on various social issues like aids, save environment, superstitions etc. The activities of the NSS unit and the programme officers are appreciated by the NMU Jalgaon and the Government of Maharashtra too by awarding the Best NSS Unit and the Best NSS Program Officers. The scheme also aims at strengthening the feeling of nationalism and their concentration on study. The activities of the scheme are strictly implemented under the guidance of well-experienced and motivating teachers. The National Service Scheme unit of our college has the capacity of absorbing 250 student volunteers. College can boast of having Best N.S.S. unit in North Maharashtra University, Jalgoan. It has been bestowed the award of "The Ideal Unit" from the N.M.U. Jalgoan and Maharashtra Government.

The overall aim of National Service Scheme as envisaged earlier, is to give an extension dimension to the higher education system and orient the student youth to community service while they are studying in educational institution. The reason for the formulation of this objective is the general realization that the college and +2 level students have a tendency to get alienated from the village/slum masses which constitute the majority of the population of the country. 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.
