He took memberships of German Anthropological Society in 1920 and German Asiatic Society in 1924.
In 1921 Datta went to Moscow to join Comintern. Manabendra Nath Roy and Birendranath Dasgupta also attended this year’s Commintren.

Then he returned to India and decided to join Indian National Congress. He became members of Bengal Regional Congress in 1927—28 and All India Congress Committee in 1929.
