Mahendra Chandra Vinod (born 1922) was a Fiji Indian civil servant and editor who has also been a member of the House of Representatives of Fiji.
He was born in Nacokaika, Naitasiri, Fiji and after completing his Bachelor of Science from the University of Hawaii and Diploma in Journalism from New Delhi, joined the Fiji civil service. He retired from the civil service in 1979 and became the editor of the Hindi language newspaper, Shanti Dut in 1981. In August 1981, he was awarded an Imperial Service Order (ISO) from the Queen of England for his contribution to Fiji.
For the 1987 general election, the NFP-Labour Coalition chose him as a candidate for the Nausori/Levuka Indian Communal Constituency which he won easily, but was a member of Parliament for a month when the military coup of 1987 put a halt to his late entry into politics.
