The Bolshevik-Leninist Party of India (BLPI) –officially the Bolshevik-Leninist Party of India, Ceylon and Burma–  was a revolutionary Trotskyist party which campaigned for independence and socialism in South Asia. The party was formed in 1942 as a unification of two Indian groups (the Bolshevik Leninist Party of the United Provinces and Bihar, and the Bolshevik Mazdoor Party of India), with Sri Lanka's Lanka Sama Samaja Party of Ceylon. It was recognized as the Indian section of the Fourth International.   It dissolved in 1947.
