Social Outreach Programmes

The college runs social outreach programmes for the benefit of children, women, and youth in the tea gardens and villages. Earlier, the college had initiated literacy programmes for children in Mujnai, Ramjhora, and Sayyedabad Tea gardens. It also started evening meal programme for the malnourished children, free computer education to the youth, and very popular skill training programme for illiterate women and young girls by teaching them tailoring, embroidery, etc. The college has certainly not forgotten the children of the neighbouring Balaigachh and Kheripara villages. The college is grateful to its staff's, students, and benefactors whose generosity and participation have made all these programmes possible for the institution.

National Service Scheme

The motto of the NSS: “NOT ME BUT YOU”. Through their combined participation in community service, both the students and the teachers get a sense of involvement in the task of nation building. The NSS volunteer works to ensure that those who are in need should get help, so that it enables them to enhance their condition of living and lead a life of dignity. In doing so, the volunteer learns from people in the villages how to lead a good life despite scarcity of resources. The NSS also provides help in natural and man-made disasters by providing food, clothing and first aid to the disaster victims. Every year the NSS unit organises a Blood Donation Camp at the college premises. The NSS volunteers also organise various awareness programmes in the nearby villages during their NSS Annual Camp in collaboration with the local Gram Panchayat and Bigyan Mancho.

Social Service Cell

The objective of this cell is to inculcate the idea of social welfare among students and to provide service to the society without bias. By doing so, the students learn to develop a sense of social and civic responsibility. The Social Service Cell takes the initiative of identifying the needs and problems of any given community. The Cell involves the community members in various managerial skills, finding practical solutions to individual and community problems, mobilizing community participation, and helping individual members to understand themselves in relation to their community. The cell performs various activities such as Health Check-Up Camp for villagers, Christmas Celebration with the under-privileged children of tea gardens, distributing clothes to the needy ones, organizing ‘Shishu Mela’ (Children's Fair) and awareness rallies, and so on.


It is the social responsibility of every human being to protect Mother Nature to the utmost. The establishment of Nature Club (X-ISTENCE) at NBSXC is a part of the pedagogical paradigm which focuses on the same. Conservation of nature and reduction of environmental stress on biodiversity decrease the vulnerability of biological species and produce a more resilient ecosystem. The activities of Nature Club provide an opportunity to the students to have an extensive practical experience and awareness of nature and its resources. The initiative is also a realization of a commitment that NBSXC harbours to nature and especially to its immediate surroundings. The Nature Club has taken the initiative of planting more than 400 plants in the campus within last three years and has pledged to keep the campus clean. The Nature Club regularly organises various awareness programmes like street play, nature photography competition, poster competition, anti-plastic campaigning etc. to motivate students towards ecoactivism.

Women’s Cell

Although it is called the ‘Women’s Cell’, this cell is not exclusively for the female staff and students of NBSXC, but wholeheartedly invites male staff and students of the college to be a part of it. Every year, the Women’s Cell celebrates International Women’s Day to highlight women’s progress and achievements in the world as well as to felicitate women achievers of the adjoining areas. Apart from providing inputs on gender sensitization, women empowerment, and so on, the cell also organises self-defense camps. In 2019, Free Medical Camp & Eye Check-Up was also conducted for the people of Balaigachh. The Women’s Cell has also collaborated with Marg (a Darjeeling-based NGO) to form Youth against Trafficking Cell (YATC) at NBSXC, so that our students can become preventive agents against human sex trafficking
