National Service Scheme (NSS)

Aimed at developing students’ personalities through community service, the National Service Scheme (NSS) is a voluntary association of students working to strengthen the campus-community linkage through social service. NSS is an Indian government-sponsored public service programme conducted by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports since 1969.

Nirma University has a vibrant NSS programme wherein the students from all institutes participate and contribute to the well-being of the neighbouring communities. The programme aims to teach social welfare to the students, provide service to society and help the needy.

The annual camps, also known as the special camps, are held in a rural village or a city suburb. Some of the villages adopted by the constituent institutes of the university are Motipura, Miroli, Khodiyar, Jaspur, Valad, Vautha, and Kavitha.

The volunteers actively participate in activities like cleaning, afforestation, awareness rallies, and health and hygiene camps. The volunteers who serve at least two years and perform 240 hours of social work are awarded a certificate.
