The Nair Service Society (NSS), which has been in the forefront of education and employment in Kerala, has launched a new initiative to establish an Academy of Civil Services with a view to moulding the youth to guide the destiny of the nation. Called the NSS Academy of Civil Services (NACS), the Academy with its state-of-the-art infrastructure will equip the young men and women of Kerala to meet the challenges of the Civil Services Examination and secure high positions at the national level.
Designed by a team of experts led by former Ambassador T. P. Sreenivasan IFS (Retd), NACS is situated at Kesavadasapuram, Thiruvananthapuram, near Mahatma Gandhi College, in an imposing building on a sprawling campus belonging to the NSS.
NACS opened its doors to the first batch of aspirants on 04 July 2012 to prepare them for the Civil Services Preliminary Examination, the CS Main Examination and the Personality Test in 2013. The first batch of students appeared for the CS Main Exam in December 2013.
