Abstract:  An up to date review of whistler research in India has been presented which is an extension of previous reviews by Somayajulu et al. [Indian J Radio Space Phys, 1 (1972) 102], and Singh [Indian J Radio Space Phys, 22 (1993) 139]. In this review efforts have been made to highlight the recent advancements in technology adopted for recording and analysis of whistlers, re-interpretations of some old data, general consensus in propagation mechanism, and effects of ionospheric irregularities on whistler propagation in the low latitude ionosphere. Some new results of existence of ELF emissions in the low latitude ionosphere as determined from the satellite DEMETER data and Trimpi/TLE phenomena in the low latitude ionosphere as observed from phase and amplitude monitoring of VLF transmitter signals have been presented.
