NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME TECHNICAL CELL
NSS Unit Nos.117&118
National Service Scheme was launched in to the stream of higher Education on September 24th 1969(the birth centenary year of Mahatma Gandhi) by Sri.V.K.R.V Rao then union Education Minister, after very long discussion and deliberation among popular national leaders and eminent educationalists to make education more realistic and community oriented, and to use the youth power to build our society.
Overall objective is to give an extension dimension to the higher education system. College, +2 level students have a tendency to get alienated from the village/slum masses which constitute the majority of the population of our country. Educated youth who are expected to take the reins of administration in future are found to be unaware of the problems of the village/slum community. 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/slums.
NSS Motto: “NOT ME BUT YOU” which reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other persons point of view and show consideration of fellow human beings.
NSS Symbol: The symbol of NSS is based on the ‘Rath’ wheel of Konark Sun Temple in Orissa which portray the cycle of creation, preservation and release and signify the movement of life across time and space. Wheel in the NSS symbol signifies the progressive cycle of life and stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS for social transformation and upliftment.
NSS volunteer: NSS volunteer who is the main beneficiary of the programme by way of development of his /her perception about the community, skill to perform certain job, develop quality of a leader, organiser and an administrator. This will enable the volunteer to develop his/her personality as a whole.

We are closely associated with the LSGD’s in and around Kothamangalam we extend all possible help and service to them whenever they require. We have conducted asset management survey and prepared asset register of eight LSGD’s in Devikulam Block and eleven LSGD’s in Kothamangalam Block during December 2005.
We have conducted special camp in villages like Mamalakandum, Anakulam etc Mamalakandum in Ernakulam District and Anakulam in Idukki District are two remote villages where there is no Electricity, proper roads for conveyance and telephone facilities.
In both the above villages people formed societies to generate Electricity of there own, from the natural water falls in the area and distribute among the members. They have erected it without adequate technical know how or proper design. Volunteers of this college are extending there service for improving the generating station and distribution system in Anakulam as a part of there curriculum work (Final Year Project) under the guidance of the teachers of this college.
