Village or Village Cluster Boards would be constituted through sustainable number of local members and units under their charge and jurisdiction. These would be decided once the party has launched in a consultative frame which would include the District and State Boards. All members that constitute the various level Boards will be through elections held once every three years from within the total membership of the party from the given area for which the Board is representing.
In addition to these Boards, the party would bring into existence focused groups drawn from the disadvantaged socio-economic segments of each village cluster, Tehsil, District and State. These groups would have focused representation with each group having its own Leadership architecture mirroring the party’s model. These focus groups would be responsible to ensure that their unique issues are tabled, discussed and included in all activity frames.

The disadvantaged socio-economic group of Tier 1 state shall comprise of between 30 – 50 elected members, Tier 2 state 50 – 75, Tier 3 state 75 – 100 elected members; and Tier 4 state as deemed appropriate.
