Gupta (Hindi: गुप्ता) is a surname of Indian origin. Gupta is a common surname in India, but it is uncertain whether there was one parent clan from which all families with Gupta surname branched.

Majumdar, it is more probable that different families without any connection adopted this name at different times.[1] In northern India, most of Guptas belong to the Hindu Baniya and Jain communities.[2] The Guptas from the West Bengal belong to the Vaid (physician) community, and are related to the Sengupta and Dasgupta communities of Bengal.
