Janata Party, Sikkim Unit (JNP Sikkim) was a state unit of JNP in Sikkim. JNP Sikkim didn't have any relationship with Sikkim Janata Party (SJP) or Sikkim Janata Parishad (SJP) in same state.

In 1977, Kazi Lhendup Dorjee (L. D. Kazi) who was the first Chief Minister of Sikkim and the president of Sikkim Pradesh Congress Committee (SPCC: Sikkim branch of Indian National Congress (INC)) defected from his party and established JNP Sikkim. The SPCC groups discontented with the attitude of L. D. Kazi established another political parties, Sikkim Congress (Revolutionary) (SCR) or Sikkim Prajatantra Congress (SPC). As the result, SPCC couldn’t send its candidate for 1979 Sikkim Legislative Assembly election.

JNP Sikkim participated in 1979 election, but it was beaten by rival political parties, Sikkim Janata Parishad (SJP), SCR and SPC. JNP Sikkim could'nt win any seat, namely L. D. Kazi also lost his seat. After this election, L. D. Kazi seceded from JNP Sikkim and rejoined SPCC at some point from 1979 to 1985.

In 1984 Sikkim Lok Sabha election, JNP Sikkim sent Ashok Kumar Subba as its candidate, but he lost and secured only 604 (0.73%) votes.

In 1985 Sikkim Legislative Assembly election, JNP Sikkim sent 20 candidates. But all JNP Sikkim candidates lost and were forfeited their deposits of candidacy.

After this election, JNP Sikkim didn't participate any other election of Sikkim. The headquarters of Janata Party also merged with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 11 August 2013.
