Who are we?

National Service Scheme, IIT Bombay, being the largest student volunteer body, is the most active and perseverent organization in the campus in the field of social/community service. We provide opportunities to students to contribute their bit in the welfare of the society. NSS has departments spanning all avenues of community service right from educating the underprivileged to innovating solutions to social problems using technology.

Spreading happiness through community service has been one of the primary objectives of NSS. With innovative activities across the departments catering to all classes of the campus residents, we try to create small, happy and memorable moments in their lives. And working in NSS itself has been one of the prime sources of happiness for the people associated with us.

What do we do?

We aim to bring about a positive change in the society with focus on Education and Development of the underprivileged, conserving Nature and sowing the seeds of Sustainability. More than 350 volunteers guided by a team of 40 members carry out several initiatives throughout the year. We also work in close collaboration with several NGOs and Governmental bodies for reaching out to more and more beneficiaries.
