NSS Stands for National Service Scheme. The main objective of the National Service Scheme as envisaged originally was service to the community, offered while undergoing instruction, in an educational institution. It was sought to arouse the social consciousness of students and provide them with the opportunity to work with the people around the educational campuses creatively and constructively and to put the education they received to concrete social use. The motto, i.e., the watchword of the NSS is “Not Me But You”. This expresses the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other man’s point of view and also to show consideration for fellow human beings. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society as a whole. Don Bosco College Maram has been in the forefront of NSS activities. The NSS unit has strength of 350 volunteers. The impetus is to give the students best educational experience in order to make them responsible and productive citizens of the country.

We have three effervescent NSS units which have been established with a rudimentary objective of providing a dais for the interested students to partake in social work during their free time.
