Abstract Discusses rigidity of Indian Plate and Indian Ocean Basin; whether relatively high level of intraplate seismicity on oceanic part of Indian plate indicates internal deformation in excess of other plates; and whether this may be related to Indo-Eurasian collision and uplift of Himalayas. Identifies five major scientific programs during 2007-08 International Polar Year that address geodynamical process between India and Antarctica.
