National Service Scheme

National Service Scheme (Under the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India and NSS cell, Higher and technical education, Govt. of Maharashtra.) has been introduced at Pravaraa Rural college of Architecture, Loni, from 2022 as a part of the academic program. National Service Scheme (NSS) has been playing a vital role in enriching the souls and minds of the students of the College. The overall objective of the scheme is ‘Education and Service’ to the community and by the community. It is a programme for students to regal the needs of the community, when required. It also helps the students to communicate with the society. The students joining this scheme develop many behavioral interactive skills. They visit the rural areas as volunteers during the camps organized by the concerned college. The NSS volunteers take initiative in developing a Technocratic Environment and also help the underprivileged people to develop themselves. The scheme promotes the ability to present them in a better way. Thus, the ultimate goal of the scheme is to strive to inculcate the bond of patriotism, national integration, brotherhood, communal harmony among the volunteers.
