The Students' Federation of India is an Indian student organisation affiliated to the Communist Party of India (Marxist).[3][4] It is considered to be the largest student organisation in India and the world with a membership of 4,300,405 as of 2014 - 2015.[5][6] Currently, V. P. Sanu is the National President and Mayukh Biswas is the National General Secretary.

History[edit]

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.[7] 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, Gujarat, West Bengal, Tripura, Assam, Odisha, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.[8][9] It has an international affiliation from the World Federation of Democratic Youths.

Flag[edit]

The SFI's flag has a red five-pointed, socialist-style star in the top left corners, on a white background and the words "Independence", "Democracy" and "Socialism" are written, in English or in a local language, one beneath the other, at the bottom right of the flag, also in red. The ratio of length and breadth of the flag is 3:2.[10]
