NSS helps the student’s development & appreciation to other person’s point of view and also show consideration towards other living beings. The philosophy of the NSS is a good doctrine in this motto, which underlines on the belief that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society as a whole and therefore, the NSS volunteers shall strive for the well-being of the society.

I further affirm that I shall never resort to violence and that all differences and disputes relating to the religion, language, region or political or economic graveness shall be settled by peaceful and constitutional manner.”
The NSS symbol is based on the “Rath” wheel of the Konark Sun Temple situated in Odisha.
The navy blue cooler indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind.
The Red cooler in the badge indicates that the NSS volunteers are full of blood i.e. lively, active, energetic and full of high spirit.
The giant wheels of the Sun Temple portray the cycle of creation, preservation and release, and signify the movement in life across time and space.
