Various programs of the NSS hold aloft the motto of universal brotherhood and the message of selflessness, ‘Not me, but you’.  All undergraduate students enroll automatically as volunteers. Being Agricultural graduates, the volunteers engage actively with different societal sectors and agencies for undertaking food security and improvement of physical environment. Programs such as tree-planting, waste disposal, cleaning and assisting in the rehabilitation work of the disabled and the destitute form the major agenda of the NSS. Apart from such programs of direct benefit for the society, NSS unit also lends their support to college students to improve organizational and soft skills. Apart from these, personality development workshops, leadership development programs, creativity demonstration assignments are also conducted to groom the student volunteers as responsible, productive and effective citizens of the country.
