  • S. R. N. Rao (a1), B. S. Tewari (a1), Krishna Mohan (a1) and A. K. Chatterji (a1)


Miocene foraminifera from the Surat-Broach and Kathiawar regions of Western India are recorded. The suggested correlation of Miocene beds of Western India, and the stratigraphical distribution of foraminifera common to W. India, Ceylon, Indonesia, and the Middle East is indicated in 2 Tables.
