Abstract: In this talk I shall narrate our plans of building a new underground laboratory facility in southern India called India-based neutrino observatory (INO). A 50 kilo-ton magnetised Iron CALorimeter (ICAL)is one of the first experiments proposed to be housed in this observatory for the study of neutrino properties like mass hierarchy, precision measurement of oscillation parameters etc. using the atmospheric neutrinos. The details of this ICAL project and its present status will also be covered in this talk.
