        PARAS is an echelle spectrograph (with resolution of 60,000) designed and developed by the members of the Astronomy and Astrophysics Division of PRL. The primary aim of PARAS is to search for planets around a sample of 100s of Dwarf main-sequence G,K,M type stars within a volume of 100pc using the Simultaneous ThAr calibration technique; Ultimate goal < 1m/s on bright targets. It has wavelength coverage of 400nm to 680nm.
