Before the formation of the CPI, there were many small communist groups in the country working with limited national coordination. The anti imperialist struggles in India had acquired new mass militant dimension with the first non cooperation movement of 1920--21.The workers, peasants, the students and the middle classes  roused to new levels of consciousness and action. The militant uprisings of the working classes manifested in a wave of strikes and struggles and in 1920All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC)was founded. It is in this turbulent historic juncture militant group of young people, consisting a cross section of workers, peasants students and middle classes came together to form the communist party of India in kanpur at the foundation meeting on 26th to 28th December 1925.
CPI is the first political party in India which demanded social justice and social equality for untouchables and women.The militant struggles resulted in the arrest of CPI leaders all over India on 29th March 1929 in what became known as Meerut  conspiracy case. The communist leadership was put behind bars for the next four years. In 1936 All India kissan sabha was setup and in the same year All India students Federation was also founded. The Progressive Writers Association in which the prominent communist writers played a prominent part was also formed in 1936.The cultural and artistic front of the party Indian People's Theater in 1943.
   The kerala unit of the CPI was formed in 1939 December at Parappuram a hilltop  in the village of Pinarayi about 8 km from Thalasseery .A crucial secret meeting of about 90 people consisting of communist leaders and prominent workers of kerala held there formed the kerala unit of the CPI and Com: P Krishnapilla was 
elected as the first State secretary. 

Until the formation of the state of kerala in 1957 ,the region was divided into three parts, the native states of Travencore,cochin and British District of Malabar. The state of affairs of the peasants, workers and common citizens were really pathetic in all these regions. The feudal lords exploited the peasantry and the colonial rulers legalized this exploitation. The condition of coir factory workers in the state of Travencore was extremely miserable. The peasants of Malabar had no right on their lands and at any time they can be evicted by the land lords  .Thus the anti feudalist movements and anti capitalist movements emerged simultaneously in kerala. The first proto Marxist organization in kerala maybe the Communist league of Travencore. A short biography of Marx in Malayalam was published by Kesari Ramakrishna Pillai in 1912 probably the first in Indian regional languages. The peasants formed kerala karshaka Sangham, Travencore labour Association organized the first strike of coir workers of Alleppy in 1934 ,solid ideological foundation and systematic intervention in peasant working class issues by the activists paved the way for the formation of the kerala unit of CPI in the year 1939.
Communists were the moving force behind every agitation by the peasants and working classes all over kerala during the pre independence era which in itself worked as a unifying force of the people who were divided into three regions. CPI voiced for the creation of a United linguistic state of kerala . But even after the independence, when the plight of the peasants and working classes still remained the same and the promise of the formation of a single state was not materialized, it was CPI, the party which relentlessly fought for its creation. In 1957 when the linguistic state of kerala was finally formed COMMUNIST PARTY OF INDIA  came to power in the state through ballet paper.
