About NSS - Hans Raj College

The National Service Scheme (NSS) unit of Hans Raj College works under the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India. Our sole aim is to inculcate the spirit of service among college students to help individuals, groups and communities cope up with their problems. We are a group of self- motivated students who have decided to bring a change in the society and work towards spreading the message of peace, education, love and development. We try to inculcate in our peers a sense of responsibility towards the society, the Nation and most importantly, equip them with values for life. We believe that since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you’re able to give. We wish to make the world a better place to live for all, socially and environmentally.

The objectives of NSS, Hans Raj are:

  • To foster a culture of ‘Service before Self’
