The Republican Party of India (Democratic) was a political party in India.[1] The leader and party president of the party was T.M. Kamble. After his death, Nanda T. Kamble became the president of the party.

The party was a splinter group of the old Ambedkarite Republican Party of India. After the 2004 election, it had minor representation within the Lok Sabha and was a constituent of the ruling United Progressive Alliance. Its presence was limited to Maharashtra.

On May 5, 2011, the RP(D) aligned itself with the BJP-led NDA. In 2015, it was listed as one of the 26 political allies for prime minister candidate- Narendra Modi.[2]

On 28 September 2015, the RP(D) was one of 16 parties in Maharashtra to be de-registered for not submitting audited balance sheets and IT return documents going back to 2005. Thus, they lost their official election symbols.[3]
