The Aravalli mountain range (AMR) in the northwestern part of the Indian Peninsula consists of two main Proterozoic metasedimentary and metaigneous sequences, the Aravalli and Delhi Supergroups, respectively, which rest over the Archaean gneissic basement. A synthesis and reinterpretation of the available geological, geochronological and geophysical data, including results of own field work and geophysical interpretations pertaining to the AMR, indicate its origin as an inverted basin: rifting… 

Deformation and Tectonic History of Punagarh Basin in the Trans-Aravalli Terrane of North-Western India

Trans-Aravalli terrane in the NW India is represented by Neoproterozoic volcano-sedimentary succession of Punagarh Basin that unconformably overlies deformed and metamorphosed basement rocks of Sojat

Palaeoproterozoic A-type felsic magmatism in the Khetri Copper Belt, Rajasthan, northwestern India: petrologic and tectonic implications

SummaryA number of small Palaeoproterozoic granitoid plutons were emplaced in the Khetri Copper Belt, which is an important Proterozoic metallogenic terrane in the northeastern part of Aravalli

Precambrian Continental Crust of India and Its Evolution

The Indian Precambrian continental crust exhibits a variety of geological features fashioned at different times by different geotectonic processes. The bulk of this crust was formed prior to 2600
