Abstract: The Giant Meterwave Radio Telescope (GMRT) is being set up near Pune in India consisting of 30 numbers of 45-m diameter parabolic dishes. Twelve of these are being placed in a central array, about 1 x 1 sq km in size, and the remaining eighteen along three 14-km long arms forming a Y-shaped array. GMRT will operate at six frequency bands near 38, 153, 233, 327, 611, and 1420 MHz. It is expected to be completed progressively by 1993, and will be the world's largest radio telescope operating at meter and decimeter wavelengths.
