National Service Scheme (NSS)


NSS has always stood up to its strong spirit of serving people keeping in mind the policy of "Not Me But You". The belief that we must live for others, is being realized through the selfless service of the NSS volunteers who get into timely action for the upliftment of the needy people of their respective localities.

NSS units of the PESCE has always given the volunteers, a platform to serve the society and bring happiness and smiles on many faces, which has sown the seeds of social commitment in many students who are otherwise kept aloof from the real challenges and torments faced by the masses in the society as a whole. NSS by its range of community service initiatives has triggered a change in the personality and attitude of the volunteers. So it is not simply an association; it’s a platform to achieve the overall abilities of every individual enrolled in the scheme.

The service rendered by NSS are varied in nature: Health, Education, Activity point programme, Community and Physical services. Regular Activities and Special Camping Programmes are the highlights of NSS activities of the college.

Mass programme for Socio Economic Survey, Nature Study tour, General orientation and Special orientation programmes, Agriculture and Organic farming are such activities.
