Government General Degree College at Pedong

National Service Scheme (NSS) Unit

The National Service Scheme Unit of the college formally came into existence in the year 2017. The unit is an added sphere to the higher education system so as to make the students contribute to the community with their service whilst learning from books and beyond. The unit aims to make the students understand the community they live, identify the problems that exist in their community while trying to solve them ensuring their active participation while they do so. The NSS unit also focuses on developing the social as well as civic responsibility amongst the students. This is put into action by performing regular activities like cleanliness drives, tree plantation, seminars and awareness programs and a special camp held every academic year for a span of one week at the adopted village where students engage in depth with the village community to improve and help the adopted village and its members.  The NSS unit looks forward to the view that by the end of their student career, the personality as well as character of the students will improve through their voluntary community services. The NSS unit of the college is headed by a trained NSS Program Officer, Dr Uden Bhutia who is an assistant professor of sociology in the college.
