Seth Govind Das (16 October 1896 – 18 June 1974) was an Indian independence activist and a distinguished parliamentarian. He belonged to the Maheshwari merchant family of Raja Gokuldas of Jabalpur. The family began as the banking firm of Sevaram Khushalchand, one of the "great firms" as termed by T.A. Timberg.

Das was also a famous Hindi author. He was well known for his support of Hindi as the national language of India. He represented Jabalpur in the Indian Parliament from 1947 to 1974.

Das was a close associate and follower of Mahatma Gandhi. He was jailed in Damoh for eight months by British, where he wrote four plays 'Prakash' (social), 'Kartavya' (mythological), 'Navras' (philosophical) and a 'Spardha'(one act play). The Government of India awarded him the civilian honour of the Padma Bhushan in 1961.
