The Republican Party of India (Gawai) is a political party in India, a splinter group of the old Ambedkarite Republican Party of India. The leaders are Kerala Governor R.S. Gavai and his son Rajendra Gawai. It is a constituent of the previous ruling United Progressive Alliance. Its presence is limited to Maharashtra.

Recently, all factions of RPI except Prakash Ambedkar's Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangha reunited to form a united "Republican Party of India". RPI (Gawai) is also merged in this united RPI. Later RPI (Gawai) split again from the united party.
