A reconstruction of the three-dimensional picture of the Indian lithosphere is attempted from the researches along selected transect corridors of the subcontinent ensuring multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary approaches. Data on the gravity field of the Indian lithosphere and deep seismic soundings and more recently generated teleseismic data, palaeomagnetic and magnetostratigraphic studies, anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility, potential fields and magneto-tellurics coupled with geological, petrological and geochemical inputs have produced a veritable storehouse of new information to model the evolution of the Indian continental crust, crust-mantle interaction, seismic prognostics and metallogenesis in this segment of the earth's crust.
