To promote students participation in community service, the university is running National Service Scheme. NSS volunteers donate blood directly to the Hospitals in case of emergency. The blood donation camps are organised in collaboration with DMCH and other social organisations.
The main focus of the scheme is on personality development through community service. University NSS volunteers have always played a pivotal role in extending value based services during every hour of need. Tree plantation, community health programs, debates/discussions on socially relevant issues such as AIDS, drug menace are some of projects being pursued by NSS volunteers.
