National Service Scheme (NSS) is a community programme with an objective of building social consciousness in students. It provides them an opportunity as volunteers to venture out of their comfort zones and be a harbinger of societal change. Our promoters have encouraged NSS Committee to sow the seeds of change amongst the most influential group of society – our students. The Committee is responsible for a gamut of events and activities undertaken by volunteers, who have, in turn, channelized their creativity and spirit of volunteerism to give new meaning to life. The Committee strives to sensitize students on various issues through discussion, debate, talks, seminars, webinars, awareness campaigns, street theatre and confluences. SRBS encourages students to expand horizons and participate in fun-filled days, which include cultural performances, competition, food and shopping. The NSS Committee of our College, through knowledge transfer and community mobilization works toward sustainable rural development.
