The India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) collaboration is planning to set up a magnetized Iron-CALorimeter (ICAL) to study atmospheric neutrino oscillations with precise measurements of oscillations parameters. ICAL uses 50 kton iron as target mass and about 28,800 Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) of 2 m × 2 m in area as active detector elements. As part of its R&D program, a prototype detector stack comprising of 12 layers of RPCs of 1 m × 1 m in area has been set up at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) to study the detector parameters using cosmic ray muons. We present here a study of cosmic ray muon flux measurement at sea level and lower latitude (18°54′N).
