Indira Sagar Project is a multipurpose project in the state of Madhya Pradesh (India). In this study, seismic hazard has been assessed for Indira Sagar Dam site. The probabilistic Seismic Hazard analysis has been used. Effects of all the faults, who can produce earthquake equal to or more than 3.5 Magnitude and those within a radius of 300 Km from the centre of the Concrete Gravity Dam have been considered. The past history of earthquakes indicated that a total 66 earthquakes of magnitude 3.5 or more have been occurred in last 172 years. The maximum magnitude reported within the region of consideration is 6.2 in 1938 in Satpura range. Probabilistic approach used these data for hazard Analysis. Results are presented in the form of peak ground acceleration and seismic hazard curves.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
