Abstract: The ionospheric electron and ion temperatures (Te and Ti) measured by RPA payload aboard SROSS-C2 satellite are found to be enhanced during the solar flares. The electron temperature (Te) is enhanced by ~32.05-45.31% and the ion temperature (Ti) enhanced by ~4.12-21.95% over quiet days. This enhancement has been obtained in the daytime ionosphere. The solar flare does not have any significant effect on the nightside ionosphere.
