History

The organization was formed when students assembled in Calcutta and decided to form a new organization for the purpose of bringing students from across the country together.[5] The student leaders originally intended to lead discussions on issues including radical education reform, employment, safeguarding, and the expansion of democratic rights.[citation needed]

The Students' Federation of India in 2017 lead the student unions of universities in Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Tripura, Assam, Odisha, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.[6][7] It is one of the largest student organisation in India with a membership of 4,300,405 as of 2014 - 2015.[8] It has an international affiliation from the World Federation of Democratic Youths.
