The RPCI traces its roots to the mid-nineteenth century when American Presbyterian missionaries established churches in North India. In the 1930s and 1940s the arrival of Bible Presbyterian Church missionanies under the Independent Board of Presbyterian Foreign Missions led to the establishment of the BPC. The BPC became part of the Saharnapur Presbytery of the RPC. In the early 1990s BP and RP churches established the Nav Jeevan Presbytery of the RPCI.
 

The RPCI is a member of the Evangelical Fellowship of India, the Reformed Presbyterian Fellowship, and is seeking membership of the ICRC.
