a) Membership: Membership is open to all Tibetans above the age of eighteen who subscribe to the Aims and Objectives of the NDPT. Furthermore; all members must abide by the Constitution of the NDPT and; while striving to fulfill its goals; members must work within the framework of the democratic Constitution of Tibet. All members have the right to elect and to be elected to any office in the party-at the Regional and/or National level-without any restrictions based on gender, religion or region.
At the moment (upto 2009) the NDPT has 5,000 members in 36 Regional Chapters within the Tibetan exile community in India, Nepal and Bhutan.
b) Regional Working Committee: All Chapters of the NDPT elect a Regional Working Committee (RWC) of 5 to 10 members. In addition to supervising the functioning of their respective Chapters; it is the task of the Regional Working Committees to keep in contact with other Regional Working Committees and to execute the directives of the Central Executive Committee. Members of their respective Chapter elect members of the RWC for a term of three years.
c) The Central Executive Committee: The Central Executive Committee or the CENTREX of the National Democratic Party of Tibet located in MCleod Ganj, Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh, India; is the highest office of the NDPT.
All members of the NDPT, regardless of location, directly elect members of the CENTREX- ranging from 7 to 15-for the term of four years.
The President, General Secretary and other members of the CENTREX who work full time at the Head Office are the only paid members of NDPT. They do not receive any extra benefits like housing or medical allowance; thus helping to minimize administrative expenditures.
In addition to supervising the functioning of the NDPT and providing guidance to the Regional Working Committees the CENTREX represents the NDPT at all national and international forums.
d) National Convention
Held every four years, the National Convention is the highest policy making body of the NDPT. The National Convention consists of all members of the CENTREX and all members of all Regional Working Committees. Only the National Convention has the power to make amendments to the Constitutions of the NDPT.
