The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a social service program sponsored by the Indian government that was launched in 1969. The program aims to develop the personality of students through community service and promote social welfare, self-help, cooperation, and responsibility. NSS has become an integral part of higher education institutions in India and provides opportunities for students to work with people from different backgrounds, promote national integration and secularism, and inculcate values of social responsibility and civic consciousness. With a lot of enjoyment and experience, students feel the essence of responsibility with a cheerful smile. NSS provides an opportunity to serve society because, in the end, NSS believes in ‘Not me, but you.’
From December 12th to 18th, 2022, the National Service Scheme (NSS) Unit of the Institute of Management, Nirma University organized a seven-day special rural camp at Ambaliyara village, ta. Dholka, Dist. Ahmedabad.
