September 24 is observed as NSS Day since 1969 and marked across the nation with great enthusiasm. It is the day when this public service scheme was officially launched in India. On this occasion, SMVDU NSS volunteers formed “NSS” by a human chain. Volunteers shared their views on the occasion and the event ended with national song Vande maataram. National Service Scheme, also known as NSS, is an extension of activities for students pursuing higher education to increase their participation in community service, in addition to their curriculum. Each volunteer must complete 120 hours of social service in one academic year.
