Communist Party of Nepal (Masal) (Nepali: नेपाल कम्युनिष्ट पार्टी (मसाल)), initially known as Communist Party of Nepal (Unity Centre-Masal) (नेपाल कम्युनिष्ट पार्टी (एकताकेन्द्र–मसाल)), is an underground communist party in Nepal, which emerged in 2006 through a split in Communist Party of Nepal (Unity Centre-Masal). In March 2007, the party held a 7th Party Congress (counting the congresses of Communist Party of Nepal, Communist Party of Nepal (Fourth Convention), Communist Party of Nepal (Masal) and CPN(UC-M) as theirs). The congress reelected Mohan Bikram Singh as general secretary. Moreover, the congress removed 'Unity Centre' from the party name.[1]

The legal mass front of the party is the Rashtriya Jana Morcha.
