A non-ICT IPPT can be booked up to 3 months in advance. You can book for a new IPPT window's non-ICT IPPT when you are still in the previous year's window, provided you have passed your IPPT in that window. You can book for an IPPT session through the following means:
  • Login and access Manage IPPT/IPT/RT
You can book a session up to 3 months in advance. Booking for morning and afternoon sessions close by 0000hrs, and evening sessions close by 1200hrs on the test date.

You should book your IPPT immediately after your IPPT window has opened. Attempting your IPPT early is the best way to prevent yourself from being an 'IPPT Defaulter' subsequently. There have been many cases where NSmen had defaulted on IPPT due to work/overseas commitments or forgetfulness.

The available time slots can be viewed when you login and book IPPT via Manage IPPT/IPT/RT.
For every successfully booked slot, you will be issued a transaction code. You should retain the transaction code. This code is used to verify that you have booked for an IPPT slot. In addition, this code is used to prove to your employer that you are attempting the non-ICT IPPT.
All amendments can be done online via Manage IPPT/IPT/RT. Any cancellation or amendment of bookings for morning and afternoon sessions must be done before 0000hrs and evening sessions must be done before 1200hrs.
You must login and book IPPT/IPT/RT personally via Manage IPPT/IPT/RT.
You are advised to call NS Call Centre (1800-367-6767) or email contact@ns.sg with your appeal. A case officer will contact you within 3 to 7 working days. 
The SAF 264 may have been sent out before your unit had charged you. You are advised to contact NS Call Centre (1800-367-6767) or email contact@ns.sg to confirm on the status of your charge.
This is because the IPPT/IPT/RT offence was committed before you were officially posted to MR. NSmen will only officially MR on 1 April of each year (e.g. if NSman receives MR certificate on 1 July 2015, he will only officially MR on 1 April 2016).
You can request to reschedule your ST if you
  • Have a medical certificate,
  • Are overseas on the ST date, or
  • Have a personal emergency on the ST date
You can reschedule your ST before you leave Singapore
You are required to be in full military uniform (No. 3 or No. 4) with proper military boots and headdress. You are to come with decent (i.e. short) and non-dyed hair. If you have valid reasons for not conforming to the above dress code, you are required to bring down documents explicitly stating your excuse (e.g. “NSman is excused from wearing boots”).
Under the SAF directive, you are not allowed to keep goatee, beard or any other type of facial hair. Only a neatly trimmed moustache is acceptable.
This is strictly not allowed. 
This is strictly not allowed. You are required to be in full military uniform (No. 3 or No. 4) with proper military boots and headdress. You are to come with decent (i.e. short) and nondyed hair.
If you are eligible for IPT in your current IPPT window, you will be able to view the IPT Booking option when you login and access Manage IPPT/IPT/RT. 
NSmen will be accorded half-day service pay and no make-up pay for each IPT session attended. This is capped at a maximum of 20 sessions within the IPPT window. NSmen are advised to schedule their training sessions at a appropriate time as IPT is a voluntary programme
Only IPT-IPPT sessions will count towards your annual 40-day limit for NS call-ups. 
NSmen who are unable to pass their IPPT can volunteer anytime within the IPPT window for 10 sessions of IPT. 

 

There are two IPPT sessions within the IPT programme. The first IPPT is during the 1st IPT session and is used to determine the baseline level. The second IPPT is during the 10th IPT session, to determine whether the NSman has met his Personal Performance Target (PPT). NSmen can also book and take a non-ICT IPPT earlier in the midst of IPT if they feel ready to meet their PPT so that they can exit from the programme earlier.
There is no minimum attendance required. IPPT will be conducted for you during your 1st and 10th IPT sessions. You can attempt a non-ICT IPPT anytime outside your IPT session by booking for an IPPT slot whenever you feel you are ready.
You can attempt your non-ICT IPPT anytime outside of your IPT session by booking for an IPPT slot whenever you feel you are ready. However, you will not be allowed to attend any IPT session if you had undergone an IPPT on the same day, as you would not be in the physical condition to undergo any physical training after IPPT.
NSmen can book their IPT sessions 3 months in advance, even if they have not completed their SAF Health Screening Programme (HSP) requirements. Upon detecting that you have not been issued with a Health Screening certificate, the booking system will remind you that you have to complete your FFI before you commence the IPT programme. If you have not completed the requirements before the scheduled test date, you will be barred from the IPT programme
Your previous IPPT results will also be considered when determining your initial PPT. You are only allowed a maximum of one drop in PPT level between the IPPT CAT test and your IPPT results in the previous year. For example, if the CAT test results determine a PPT level 1 standard, but IPPT results in the previous year is a PPT level 4 standard, your initial PPT standard in IPT will be a level 3 standard instead of level 1. 
We are happy that the IPT has helped you to pass your IPPT/meet your PPT. As you have achieved the aim of the IPT, you would be discharged from the IPT programme. This would enable the FCC to concentrate their limited resources to train the NSmen who are still in the IPT programme. 
ICT has priority over IPT. You should NOT book IPT sessions which overlap with your ICT.
NSmen will be able to see all available IPT sessions 3 months in advance in the booking system. They will be able to book up to 10 sessions within those 3 months, where the first session is an IPT-IPPT.
You are advised to book another session to replace the missed IPT session.
There is no requirement to defer IPT sessions as you are free to book any new IPT sessions available in the booking system within your IPPT window.
You can continue your IPT sessions as long as the sessions take place within your IPPT window. 
Upon completion of each training session, you will collect an attendance slip indicating the number of IPT sessions and individual Personal Performance Target (PPT).
Each colour represents the training programme you have selected: 
 
Colour Programme
Yellow IPPT-specfic training
Green Weight loss
Blue Metabolic circuits
Red Aerobic threshold circuits
Orange Sports/games-based training

 

The standards vary according to your age, vocation and ORD date. Please login and access Manage IPPT/RT/IPT to check your IPPT passing standards. The incentive award comprises:
 
Award Monetary Incentive  IPPT Badge
Gold $500  Gold IPPT badge 
Silver  $300 Silver IPPT badge
Pass with Incentive $200 No badge
Pass Nil No badge
The same incentive scheme applies for all your IPPT attempts. Should you improve on your result to the next award level, you will be eligible for the incremental difference between the awards you have achieved. For example, if you failed the IPPT on the third attempt but achieved a pass with incentive ($200) on the fourth attempt, and a silver standard ($300) on the fifth attempt, you will be awarded $200 on your fourth attempt, and another $100 on your fifth attempt. However, please take note that you are only entitled to one GOLD award per IPPT window.
The administration and conduct of IPPT at SAFRA is similar to FCCs, except for the 2.4km station which is a conducted on a treadmill. 
Similar to taking IPPT at the FCCs, IPPT@SAFRA will be conducted by the Fitness Trainers employed by SAF. All the necessary safety measures and precautions will also be in place.
The IPPT@SAFRA will only issue a 'pass only' standard as it aims to complement the outdoor IPPT. Those who aspire to achieve monetary awards should continue to take their IPPT at FCCs or during their ICT.
Yes, you may re-take as many IPPT as you want at the gym. However, you will only be accorded service and make-up pay (if applicable) for the first three attempts. In addition, for non-SAFRA members, a per-entry nominal sum will be levied for the usage of the gym and its facilities. SAFRA members need not pay.
You will be allowed to take single station retest (except the 2.4km run) within 90 days from the original test date or until the end of your IPPT window – whichever is earlier. If you do not pass the single station within 90 days, you will have to retake the entire IPPT.
NSmen who take IPPT@SAFRA are not eligible for incentive awards. As elite forces of the SAF, Commandos and NDU Divers are expected to strive for incentive awards instead of a pass.
Family members are welcome to accompany you and use the SAFRA EnergyOne Gym facilities. They do not have to be members of the gym, but guest fees will apply. 
The IPT-in-the-Park is an initiative to provide fitness training for NSmen who are working or living in parts of Singapore far away from our FCCs. The programme is open to all NSmen who are eligible for IPPT/IPT but not RT. 
As part of the overarching SAF Fitness Framework, IPT-in-the-Park aims to provide greater flexibility to help our NSmen in their training programme, in this case by bringing the training closer to their home or place of work. With a programme closely aligned with the FCCs, we believe this will encourage more NSmen to participate and take ownership of their fitness and stay fit.
NSmen can login and book their IPT-in-the-Park sessions via Manage IPPT/IPT/RT. As each IPT-in-the-Park session has a daily capacity of 50 participants, registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
Attendance for IPT-in-the-Park sessions will count towards the serviceman’s IPT requirements. However, the 1st and 10th session of the IPT programme must be taken at an FCC or IPPT@SAFRA as IPT-IPPT will be conducted.
Each IPT-in-the-Park session is approximately 75 minutes in duration with the following activities:
  • In and out-processing/Safety Briefing and warm-up – 15 minutes
  • Fitness Training and cool-down – 60 minutes.
During IPT-in-the-Park, one of the IPT programmes, Metabolic Circuit training, will be conducted. 
Qualified commercial Fitness Trainers (FT) are employed to conduct the sessions. 
The SAF places great emphasis in the conduct of our training sessions for our soldiers. The professional trainers who are employed for the conduct of IPT-in-the-Park are all certified with a valid Fitness Instructor Certificate (FIC) issued by fitness agencies recognised by Sports Singapore or equivalent. There is also an onsite paramedic at every session to render assistance to any participant who is not feeling well.

 

The start of the IPT-in-the- Park session will be delayed for 30 minutes if there is a CAT 1 Lightning Risk. If the risk persists, the training will be cancelled. 
Attendance will not be accorded to NSmen for an IPT session which was cancelled due to inclement weather. As we are adopting existing public infrastructure to conduct the programme, in areas where shelter is not available, we are not able to conduct fruitful training for NSmen. Thus, it is not right to accord them the attendance.
We are enhancing the system to push the information to NSmen through SMS once the conducting body decides to cancel the session. In the interim, NSmen can call the Kranji FCC at 6427 2146 to check if the session is cancelled. Fitness Trainers will also be on the ground to advise NSmen.
Fitness training outside of FCCs is not a new concept. Since 2008, the SAF has been offering IPT at all the SAFRA EnergyOne Gyms. NSmen can volunteer for these programmes for a nominal fee.
Once posted to MINDEF Reserve, your status as active NS will cease and you are not required to take IPPT. NSmen will officially be posted to MINDEF Reserve on 1 April of each year (e.g. if NSman receives MR certificate on 1 July 2015, he will only officially MR on 1 April 2016).

The IPPT window commences on the NSman's birthday each year and ends on the day before his next birthday, both days inclusive.

Your IPPT window begins on your next birthday, but you can start taking your IPPT from the effective date of posting to the new unit. Provisions to allow the early opening of your IPPT window ahead of your next birthday have been implemented. Any IPPT attempts, incentive awards achieved during this early window are considered as within the same IPPT window. 

Example:
Your date of posting is on 4 March 2016, but your IPPT window begins on 6 May 2016. 

You take and pass your IPPT on 7 April 2016. 

You have fulfilled your IPPT requirements for your coming IPPT Window, and do not have to take IPPT until your coming IPPT Window ends on 5 May 2017.

If you are born on 29 February (a leap year), your IPPT window will commence on 1 March in any year which is not a leap year.

Example:
2016 is a leap year - therefore your IPPT window starts on 29 February 2016. 

2017 is not a leap year - therefore, your IPPT window starts on 1 March 2017.

You can book and take your IPPT after your ORD and before your IPPT window opens. If you pass your IPPT, you have fulfilled your IPPT requirements for that coming IPPT window.

Example:
Your ORD is on 4 March 2016, but your IPPT window begins on 6 May 2016.

You take and pass your IPPT on 7 April 2016.

You have fulfilled your IPPT requirements for your coming IPPT Window, and do not have to take IPPT until your coming IPPT Window ends on 5 May 2017.

Note: For safety reasons, please ensure that there is at least 1 day of rest between your IPPT attempts.

All NSmen who are eligible for IPPT are required, under Section 14 of the Enlistment Act Cap 93, to report and undergo IPPT activities, including RT if required, every year until they are posted to the MINDEF Reserve or until age 40 and 45 years old for WOSPEC and Officers respectively.

The onus is on the individual to attend IPPT or RT. However, an SMS would be sent to NSmen who have not booked or attempted the IPPT 4 months into their IPPT window, and another SMS would be sent to NSmen who have yet to pass the IPPT 9 months into their IPPT window. The SMS will be sent to your mobile number registered in Update My Profile.

If you are overseas for:
  • Less than 6 months, you are still required to take IPPT, failing which you will be deemed as an IPPT defaulter.
     
  • More than 6 months but less than 12 months, you will have to apply for Exit Permit by accessing Manage Overseas Trip, and you are still required to take IPPT before leaving Singapore or after returning (within your IPPT window).
     
  • 1 year or more, you will have to login and apply for an Exit Permit by accessing Manage Overseas Trip. Once approved, your disruption from NS will be automatically processed and you do not have to take your IPPT for the window in which you are disrupted.
As long as you are IPPT-eligible, you are required to fulfil your annual IPPT requirement within your IPPT window. As the booking system allows for advance booking and booking via the Internet, you can forecast your return from overseas and attempt a non-ICT IPPT.
You will have to login and apply for an Exit Permit by accessing Manage Overseas Trip. Once approved, your disruption from NS will automatically be processed and you do not have to take your IPPT for the window in which you are disrupted. As part of the disruption application process, your IPPT history will be checked to ensure that you do not have any outstanding IPPT/RT related offences.
You will be deemed as an ‘IPPT Defaulter’ and will be required to attend the Summary Trial (ST) when an SAF 264 is served to you. You are advised to present your mitigating plea to the Disciplinary Officer (DO). 
No extension will be given as the IPPT/RT window is a 12-month window for NSmen to have more time and flexibility to meet IPPT/IPT/RT requirements.

If you are liable for IPPT and did not take it in your last IPPT Window without being exempted, you are considered an IPPT defaulter. You will need to take up to 20 RT sessions in your current IPPT Window. 

The period of time that you were overseas did not meet the minimum requirement for you to be exempted from IPPT. As such, you are classified as an IPPT defaulter, therefore an SAF 264 is being issued to you.
In-Camp Training (ICT) will continue to have IPPT to facilitate the convenience of our NSmen who have yet to fulfil their requirements. As part of the SAF effort to encourage NSmen to incorporate fitness as a daily habit, Unit Commanders can excuse NSmen from IPPT during ICT on a case-by-case basis as an incentive to encourage our NSmen to take ownership of their fitness.
There is no requirement to inform your unit when you take IPPT.
As a DXO, you can take your annual IPPT with the active unit that you are working in. You will not be paid service or make-up pay, but you can qualify for monetary awards if you meet the required standards. The IPPT session taken with the active unit will not count towards your annual 40-day limit of NS call-up or one of the three self-initiated non-ICT IPPT sessions
You will be issued an IPPT result slip at the end of the IPPT session, which can be used as proof of your attendance. Alternatively, you can login and access your past IPPT record via View My NS Booklet.

For every IPPT session that you attend, you will be in-processed before you can take the test. Once you are in-processed, SAF provides the necessary medical coverage as well as the responsibility of being liable for any injuries as a result of taking part in these sessions.

'IPPT-FFI' was the term used to refer to the compulsory medical examination done for all IPPTeligible NSmen aged 35 and above. The 'IPPT-FFI' has been incorporated into the revised SAF Health Screening Programme (HSP) which came into effect on 30 May 2011. There is no need to do a separate 'IPPT-FFI' if you have already completed the SAF Health Screening Programme for that year.

All IPPT-eligible NSmen aged 35 years old and above are required to complete the SAF Health Screening Programme (HSP) every year before attempting IPPT. The aim of this medical screening is to detect any medical conditions which may make you unsuitable for the IPPT. You will not be allowed to take the IPPT if you are 35 years old and above and have not completed your SAF Health Screening Programme (HSP) requirements for the year.

The SAF Health Screening Programme (HSP) review will be initiated by your NS unit administrator when your IPPT window (birthday window) is open. You will be issued with a certificate after completion of your SAF Health Screening Programme (HSP) requirements. The certificate is valid for 30 days after your birthday. For example, if you are 35 years old, the certificate will be valid until (and including) the 30th day after your 36th birthday

NSmen can book their non-ICT sessions 3 months in advance, even if they have not completed their SAF Health Screening Programme (HSP) requirements. Upon detecting that you have not been issued with a Health Screening certificate, the booking system will remind you that you have to complete your FFI before you commence the IPT programme. If you have not completed the requirements before the scheduled test date, you will be barred from the test session. 
You can check your FFI status by accessing Manage Medical (eHealth).
You will not be exempted from IPPT/RT unless you have 6 months continuous or 9 months cumulative medical exemption. You are advised to book your SAF HSP as soon as your IPPT/RT window opens. If you did not complete your IPPT or RT requirements, you will be deemed as a defaulter. 

It is important that you seek medical treatment if you are injured or medically unfit. The Medical Certificate (MC) that your doctor issues to you is recognised as a valid medical excuse. However, you can only be exempted from the annual IPPT requirement if you have 6 months continuous or 9 months cumulative medical exemption within the IPPT window. You are advised to book a medical review via Manage Medical (eHealth) to get your medical excuse endorsed by your unit Medical Officer. 

You will not be exempted from your annual IPPT requirement for both IPPT windows. 
As the onus of taking IPPT is on the individual, you should be able to determine whether your medical excuse for your injury will last beyond your current IPPT window and whether you have accumulated enough medical excuse (i.e. 6 months continuous or 9 months cumulative) to be exempted from the IPPT. You will need to keep records of all your medical excuses and submit them to your NS unit within one month after your IPPT window closes to appeal against being dealt with as an 'IPPT Defaulter'.
You will not be eligible for the monetary award. The ICT-IPPT that you had taken will be considered invalid as you had been covered with medical excuse given by the Medical Officer.

If you are above 45 and 40 years old for Officers and non-Officers respectively, – you can volunteer to do IPPT if you are on the NS Volunteer scheme. You will qualify for the awards and their corresponding monetary rewards, and not have to take RT if you fail.

MINDEF is piloting the use of PayNow to provide immediate payment of IPPT incentive awards to SAF NSmen. This is in line with the government’s efforts to promote the adoption of more efficient payment methods as part of the move towards a Smart Nation. 

Under the PayNow pilot, SAF NSmen who have registered for PayNow and linked their PayNow accounts to their NRIC numbers will be able to receive their IPPT incentive award immediately after completing their IPPT. The pilot will be conducted at Maju FCC from early 2019, and implemented at the rest of the FCCs in Bedok, Khatib and Kranji by mid-2019. Please check the IPPT booking page or this FAQ page on the NS Portal for updates on the implementation of PayNow for IPPT Incentive Awards.

The pilot will be launched in Maju FCC in early 2019. The exact date of the launch will be announced on the NS Portal website closer to the date.
PayNow for IPPT Incentive Awards is expected to be implemented at Bedok, Khatib and Kranji FCCs by mid-2019. You may check the IPPT booking page or this FAQ page on the NS Portal website for updates on the timing of the implementation.

Only your IPPT incentive award will be paid via PayNow. You will receive your IPPT service and/or make-up pay separately via GIRO as per the existing payment process, which will take around 14 days.

You are advised to check your online banking transaction history to verify that you have received your IPPT incentive award.

Your IPPT incentive award will be paid via PayNow if you have completed your IPPT at a participating FCC and have an existing PayNow account linked to your NRIC number. To opt out of receiving your IPPT incentive award via PayNow, please delink your NRIC number from your PayNow account prior to completing your IPPT.
For unsuccessful PayNow transactions, your IPPT incentive award will be paid via GIRO as per the existing payment process. You will receive your IPPT incentive award around 14 days after the completion of your IPPT.

NSmen taking their IPPT as part of their IPT or RT at participating FCCs and who have an existing PayNow account linked to their NRIC number will be able to receive their IPPT incentive award via PayNow.

NSmen will be paid half-day service pay and make-up pay (if applicable, NSmen will have to submit a make-up pay claim via Manage NSmen Payments) for each RT session attended. The respective FCC will submit the attendance list via IRIS, within three working days of the session, to NS Pay to process the payment. NS Pay will then effect the payment on a weekly basis.
You are allowed to book non-ICT IPPT after completing your RT requirements (if you wish to attain a better IPPT score). 
Each RT session will be computed as a half-day service and will count towards the NSman's annual 40-day limit to NS call-ups. Attendance of ICT has priority over RT, hence only the balance days will be used for RT call-ups.
If you pass your RT-IPPT, you have met your RT requirements and will not be allowed to continue with the rest of your RT. If you would like to continue participating in the training programmes, you can sign up for IPPT Preparatory Training (IPT) instead.
Each colour represents the training programme you have selected:
Colour Programme
Yellow IPPT-specific training
Green Weight loss
Blue Metabolic circuits
Red Aerobic threshold circuits
Orange Sports/games-based training

RT is only conducted at FCCs. 

If you are eligible for E1 PEP in your current window, you will be able to view the E1 PEP booking option when you login and access Manage IPPT/IPT/RT.
NSmen will be accorded half-day service pay and no make-up pay for each E1 PEP session attended. This is capped at a maximum of 20 sessions within the IPPT window. NSmen are advised to schedule their training sessions at the appropriate time as E1 PEP is a voluntary programme.
You can book for E1 PEP anytime within your IPPT window.
You can volunteer anytime within your IPPT window for 10 sessions of E1 PEP. Your first and last E1 PEP sessions must be taken at an FCC or IPPT@SAFRA, as IPT-IPPT will be conducted there. Please note that your 10 sessions of IPT under E1 PEP cannot be combined with IPT at FCCs or IPT-in-the-Park.
There are two IPPT sessions within the E1 PEP. The first IPPT is during the 1st E1 PEP session and is used to determine the baseline level. The second IPPT is during the 10th E1 PEP session, to determine whether the NSman has met his Personal Performance Target (PPT). NSmen can also book and take a non-ICT IPPT earlier in the midst of E1 PEP if they feel ready to meet their PPT so that they can exit from the programme earlier. All IPPT is conducted at authorised IPPT centres (i.e. all FCCs and IPPT@SAFRA).
There is no minimum attendance required. IPPT will be conducted for you during your 1st and 10th E1 PEP sessions at IPPT@SAFRA or FCC. You can attempt a non-ICT IPPT anytime outside your E1 PEP session by booking for an IPPT slot whenever you feel you are ready.
You can attempt your non-ICT IPPT anytime outside your E1 PEP session by booking for an IPPT slot whenever you feel you are ready. However, you will not be allowed to attend any E1 PEP session if you had undergone an IPPT on the same day, as you would not be in the physical condition to undergo any physical training after IPPT. Once you pass your non-ICT IPPT, you would have the choice to be discharged from the E1 PEP programme.
NSmen can book their E1 PEP sessions 3 months in advance, even if they have not completed their SAF Health Screening Programme (HSP) requirements. Upon detecting that you have not been issued with a Health Screening certificate, the booking system will remind you that you have to complete your FFI before you commence the E1 PEP programme. If you have not completed the requirements before the scheduled test date, you will be barred from the E1 PEP programme.
Your previous IPPT results will also be considered when determining your initial PPT. You are only allowed a maximum of one drop in PPT level between the IPPT CAT test and your IPPT results in the previous year. For example, if the CAT test results determines a PPT level 1 standard, but IPPT results in the previous year is a PPT level 4 standard, your initial PPT standard in E1 PEP will be a level 3 standard instead of level 1.
All E1 PEP programmes within a window will follow the same PPT for that year. His PPT will remain the same for that year regardless of the number of E1 PEP programmes he attends.
ICT has priority over E1 PEP. You should NOT book E1 PEP sessions which overlap with your ICT. 
NSmen must book and attend the 1st E1 PEP session before they will be allowed to book subsequent sessions. NSmen must book and attend the 9th E1 PEP session before they will be allowed to book the 10th session.
You are advised to book another session to replace the missed E1 PEP session.
There is no requirement to defer E1 PEP sessions as you are free to book any other new E1 PEP sessions available in the booking system within your IPPT window.
You can continue your E1 PEP sessions as long as the sessions take place within your IPPT window
You can enter in your civilian or exercise attire. 
Besides your PT attire, you will need to bring along your SAF 11B or your NRIC to register for the IPPT session. If you are 35 years old and above, and had attended your medical screening within the past week, you will need to bring along your valid FFI certificate for verification.
You are to report 15 minutes before the commencement of the non-ICT IPPT session. This is to facilitate in-processing and completion of the exercise early so that all NSmen will be able to finish their IPPT sessions in a reasonable time.
Please approach the Conducting Officer for advice when you arrive to see how you can still participate.
As safety precaution, IPPT, IPT and RT will be conducted indoors or cancelled, if the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) reaches hazardous levels. You will receive an SMS notification if there has been a cancellation.
For IPPT/IPT/RT conducted at FCCs, Army Fitness Centre (AFC) will notify NSmen through their mobile phone when the session is cancelled.
