CPI(ML) ND has been following both parliamentary and non-parliamentary methods of class struggle. It participates in elections unlike the Communist Party of India (Maoist) and also has an underground guerrilla army with weapons. The party has open mass organizations like the Indian Federation of Trade Unions (IFTU) for industrial workers and the All India Kisan-Mazdoor Sabha for farmers and agricultural workers.

In the recent years CPI(ML) ND has been more radicalized and started focusing more on the underground guerrilla work distancing itself from the parliamentary left and the moderate Marxist-Leninist factions.

CPI(M-L) ND has two big students unions, PDSU, and PSU in Punjab.
