Well each student in first year of B.Tech./Integrated M.Sc. programme have to to register for two semesters of extra curricular activity like National Service Scheme (NSS).

National Service Scheme (NSS)

Applicants who join NSS are grouped into four different departments –

Educational Outreach

Events, Personality

Development Program (PDP) or Group for Rural Activities (GRA).

Based on the allocation, different people are allotted different activities.

Happening of NSS sessions differs depending on the branch, but on an average, hourly sessions per week can be thought of .

Students joining Educational Outreach shall have to put in around two hours a week teaching Basic Sciences/Mathematics/English to students of 6th standard onwards.

They can also be allotted other activities like helping out in computer literacy classes, etc.


Various workshops and activities like clothes-collection campaigns which the students are expected to attend and help in organizing.

PDP sessions usually consist of things like debates and group discussions where students discuss socially relevant issues.

They need to start a blog and update it at regular intervals.

They may also have to join the events department from time to time in community work, mainly the clothes collection campaign, which is often organized in association with various NGOs.

A very important joint activity for Events and PDP people is the Navchetna Shivir organised once a semester.

It is a five-day event here participating students are taught meditation techniques.

This is a compulsory event and and it is mandatory to attend all five days to be marked as present in this activity.

GRA is mainly concerned with rural life and problems.

Apart from this, the most important activity of NSS is a trip to a village, one in each semester.

These trips are compulsory for all NSS students regardless of department

Benefits .

Applicants who are active participants in NSS and show dedication in their work are also awarded with a certificate of appreciation from the NSS.

You may also continue working for NSS as volunteers after their first year.
