The Republican Party of India (RPI) is a political party in India. It has its roots in the Scheduled Castes Federation led by Dr. B. R. Ambedkar.

During the recent years RPI suffered severe internal strife. Several distinct parties claim the name of RPI. Splinter groups of RPI include:

  • Republican Party of India (JAI BHIM) of Adv.Prakash Bhaskarrao Bhosale

There are more than 50 factions of RPI. Recently, all factions of RPI except Prakash Ambedkar's Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangha reunited to form a united "Republican Party of India (United)". Later, Republican Party of India (Gavai) split again from the united party. In June 2011, Republican Party of India (Athawale) joined the right wing alliance of Shivsena and BJP.

Note: A splinter faction of RPI Haryana Republican Party merged with Congress in May 2004.
