The National Service Scheme (NSS) Units of T.Romana College was started with a view to establish a meaningful linkage between the institution and the Community. Initially, the College has four Units with 400 volunteers under the guidance of two Programme Officers (P.Os). The number of volunteers has increased gradually and reached the highest enrollment in 1999-2000. During this year 700 students were enrolled as volunteers.

At present, the college has five Units with 500 volunteers under the guidance of 5 Programme Officers (P.Os.). The Programme Officers in charge of the NSS Units are:

1. Dr. Malsawmliana, Dept. of History
2. Mr. Lalnunzira, Dept. of Mizo
3. Mr. H.Lalnunmawia, Dept. of Economics
4. Mr. Lalsangzela Pachuau, Dept. of Political Science, and
5. Dr. Vanlalchami, Dept. of English.

All the services of the NSS Unit were performed through Regular Activities of the Unit as well as through Special Camping programmes. These services include Voluntary Blood Donation, AIDS Awareness Campaign, roadside plantation of trees, community development etc. Besides, the NSS Unit of the college has also played an active role in social works such as construction of waiting sheds, public urinals, and pavilion in public playgrounds in collaboration with the community of the concerned areas.

During the past years, the NSS Unit of this College has selected several villages as adopted villages. These adopted villages were given priority where student volunteers and the POs directly involve themselves for the development and upliftment of such villages. Within these areas the Unit has also undertaken several programmes like - literacy campaign, Career Guidance, AIDS awareness, Cleanliness drive etc. Under the Government’s Programme of plantation and afforestation, the Unit planted thousands of saplings at different sites and places. At present, two plantation sites at Durtlang and Sihhmui villages are looked after by the unit itself, wherein clearing of weeds, fencing and other activities are undertaken at regular intervals.

One of the remarkable services of the unit is the voluntary donation of blood for use in hospitals. This service is being rendered regularly following the annual calendar chalked out by the State NSS Cell. While organizing the camp, the volunteers willingly donate their blood for patients in hospitals.

Keeping in view the needs and expectations of the community, it has always been the endeavor of the college NSS Unit to render its services at its level best.
