NSS/NCC

NSS

The college runs two NSS units consisting of 100 volunteers each. The primary aim of NSS is to impart education through community service and to stimulate the participation of the volunteers in constructive and extension work in slums and backward villages, where they are encouraged and expected to solve the different problems faced by the inhabitants. Students of all classes are eligible for enrolment in NSS. In order to successfully complete the NSS training programme, each student is required to put in 120 hours of work during one session. He/she also has to attend a service camp. Enthusiastic volunteers are even selected for training and special camps are organized by the Directorate of NSS. By participating in such programmes, the students can reap different kinds of benefits too. Not only do they become socially responsible citizens, but are also awarded certificates which carry an additional weightage at the time of placements and admission in a higher class.

 

NCC

The college has been granted 2 NCC platoons comprising 52 cadets each. During each session, an NCC cadet has to attend 30 parades and 96 periods for the award of certificate. Like NSS, the NCC certificates also carry a similar weightage. In addition to these, if any student wishes to specialize or train himself for a career in the armed forces, it becomes mandatory for him to attend two camps during the three years of his stay in the college and participate in certain service attachments, as decided by the authorities. Cadets are also groomed for a regular commission in the army and paramilitary forces. Besides these, the cadets are also offered opportunities to participate in additional service training programmes like the Republic Day Parade at Delhi, Basic and Advanced Leadership camps, etc. As part of these training programmes, the cadets are provided a complete kit catering to all their needs. However, in case ofloss or damage to these kits, they need to make good the loss.
