Pramod Vyankatesh Mahajan (30 October 1949 – 3 May 2006) was an Indian politician. He was one of the second generation leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and, at the time of his death, was locked in a power struggle over who would take over the reins of the BJP when the current aging leadership retires. He belonged to a group of relatively young "technocrat" leaders who lack a grassroots political base, although he was fairly popular in his home state of Maharashtra in western India.

He was a member of the Rajya Sabha and a General Secretary of his party. He contested only two Loksabha elections from Mumbai - North East constituency. He won in 1996 but lost in 1998. As a minister in charge of telecommunications between 2001 and 2003, he played a major role in India's cellular revolution, but was also accused of improperly favouring Reliance Infocomm. He was widely seen as a successful Parliamentary Affairs minister due to his good relations with political parties across the ideological spectrum. On 22 April 2006, he was shot at and fatally injured by his brother Pravin Mahajan over a family dispute. He succumbed to his wounds 13 days later. Pravin was sentenced to lifetime imprisonment by the court in 2007. Subsequently, Pravin died of brain haemorrhage in 2010. (en)
