During the 1920s and in 1930s the party was poorly organized. In the year of 1934, the main offices of the Communist Party of India were located in Bombay, Calcutta and Punjab. After that party expanded its activities to Madras. A group of Andhra and Tamil students, amongst them P. Sundarayya, were recruited to the CPI by Amir Hyder Khan. The party was reorganized in 1933, after the communist leaders from the Meerut trials were released. A central committee of the party was formed and in 1934. There after CPI was accepted as the Indian section of the Communist International.
