National Service Scheme (NSS)

Aimed at developing students’ personality through community service, the National Service Scheme (NSS) is a voluntary association of students in higher secondary schools, colleges, and at universities working for strengthening the campus-community linkage. NSS is an Indian government-sponsored public service programme conducted by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports since1969.
Nirma University has a vibrant NSS programme wherein the students from all institutions participate and contribute to the well-being of the neighbouring communities. Regular activities are held from time to time, and annual special camps are also conducted which last for five to seven days.
The annual camps known as 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.
Volunteers are involved in activities, such as cleaning, afforestation, stage shows, awareness rallies, and health and hygiene camps. NSS volunteers who have served for at least two years and have performed 240 hours of social work are presented with a certificate by the University.
