Centre of Indian Communists (CIC) was a minor Maoist group in the Indian state of Kerala. The organisation was founded at a convention in Ernakulam in 1974. It included elements that had broken away from Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI(M)).

The organisation identified Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) (CPI(ML)) as 'Indian Narodniks'.

CIC was one of ten Maoist groups that were banned by the Central government on 4 July 1977.
