The National Service scheme is an Indian government sponsored public service programme conducted by the Ministry of youth Affairs and Sports of the Government of India. The institution runs the unit of 250 students. The programme aims to instill the idea of social welfare in students, and to provide service to society without bias.

The College students actively participate in social service activities leading to their overall development. Through these schemes, the institution undertakes various extension activities in the neighboring communities. Every year the college selects a neighboring village in the vicinity, organizes a camp for seven days and takes up cleanliness, village survey, and other constructive works. The eventual goal of the scheme is to endeavor to inculcate the bond of patriotism, national integration, brotherhood, gender equality, communal harmony among these volunteers.

Dr B.A.M.University Aurangabad has laid down the compulsory practice to adopt a village for 5 years. Under this rule our NSS unit has adopted a village “Pokhari”. The NSS unit has constructed a dam in Pokhari Village three years before and this year the depth of the dam was increased to meet the water requirement of nearby people of the village. In order to create the social awareness NSS students performed street plays on social issues such as Aids awareness, Female feticides, Water conservation, Tree plantation, Anti-liquor movement and Adult literacy . During NSS camp, students visited every house in Pokhari and created awareness among women about education, health and sanitation.

Blood donation camps are organized every year in collaboration with Dattaji Bhale Blood Bank Aurangabad. Not only our students but our staff and residence of village Pokhari also have taken active part in donating blood. Our NSS students actively participated in various rallies organized on various social sensitizing issues.

One day workshop on POCSO was organized by ICC and NSS jointly for the students which helped them to be alert regarding the crime against the child abuse. The campus and awareness programs have improved their understanding about various social issues.
