Third Sector Governance in India
The third sector in India is unique because it represents a public space where social aspirations converge in a vast, complicated and heterogeneous terrain through the work of incorporated bodies, unregistered organisations, informal groups and nonformal community initiatives. The best organized and most familiar forms of voluntary initiatives include the cooperatives and non-government organisations (NGOs), whereas self help groups, community organisations and associations of indigenous people are less formal, unregistered but have a wide geographic and functional coverage. The third sector in India has a long history, varied sizes and diverse structure and functions-complementing the vastness and cultural intricacies of the country.
