N.S.S/ Legal Aid Clinic


The overall aim of N.S.S. as envisaged is to give an extensive dimension to the higher education system and orient the student youth to community service while they are studying in educational Institution. The educated youth who are, expected to take the reins of administration in future are found to be unaware of the problems of the villages slum community and, in certain cases are indifferent towards their needs and problems. Therefore it is necessary to arouse the social conscience of the students, and to provide them an opportunity to work with the people in the villages and slums. It is felt that their interaction with the common villages and slum dwellers will expose them to the realities of life and bring about a change in their social perception. College has been sanctioned N.S.S. Scheme by the University and college organizes various programmes under this scheme, which includes special winter camps. Tree plantation, blood donation, fund raising for drought affected people, orphans etc.
