The National Service Scheme (N.S.S.) has been introduced at Savitribai Phule Pune University since 1969 as a part of the extra- curricular programme. The objective of the scheme is to provide educational and moral values through service to the community. It is a student-centric program which is implemented for developing interactive skills and awareness among volunteers to become better and capable citizens of the nation. The volunteers visit the rural areas and focus on developing the village and creating awareness among underprivileged people for improving their status. The scheme promotes the ability to present them in a better manner.
