About Us

    The Nair Service Society is an organization, that sprawling from one end of our state to the other, has been playing a signal role in the transformation of our society. Literate Kerala is deeply indebted to the N.S.S. for Elementary schools to Grade I Colleges set up and managed by this organization throughout the length and breadth of our state. Most of these instructions are in rural areas which would have remained obscure and unawakened easily for several more decades had it not been for these temples of learning founded there by the N.S.S. chroniclers have already acknowledged the role of the N.S.S. as an agent of progress and change.



   "Higher education enables and empowers the youth, even though if faces a lot challenges now-a-days. The meaningful composition of knowledge and skills acquired by students from higher learning leads to a gainful employment. For this the educational ambience of the institution should enrich the curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular experience of the student. As a center of higher learning NSS College Ottapalam shoulders the responsibility of imparting knowledge and skill to the talented youth in a systematic manner. Our college is run by Nair Service Society, the foremost social and educational organization and is aided by Govt of Kerala. Our college offers 13 UG and 6 PG programs. I heartily welcome you to our website which will be informative and useful. " - Dr. K.R. Madhusudanan Pillai

In July 1962 it was upgraded and was shifted to the present site. The premised of the College consist mostly of donated from Smt. K.P.S. Menon and Sri. Vapala Sankaranarayana Menon.

    The Nair Service Society , a synonym for selfless service and social commitment was founded by the late Sri.Mannathu Padmanabhan in 31-10-1914. It came into being at a crucial stage in the history of the Nair community which was facing a crisis brought about by disunity and blind adherence to outmoded customs, beliefs and practices. They had a glorious past .but ignorance, accumulated over centuries, reinforced by inadequate education, proved disastrous for the community. Their predilection for celebrations and penchant for ceremonial occasions fuelled by a strong affinity towards profligacy and extravaganza, contributed to their decline and downfall. Gradual loss of land holdings, underemployment and unemployment due to lack of modern education completed the process of disintegration
