The occurrence of landslides is quite common on natural slopes and tectonically active region showing high degree of rock instability. A slope failure is developed due to progressive external loads and deteriorations of slope geo-materials and is major cause of landslides. In our country, till date, some research institutes are carrying out scattered efforts to analyse the landslide hazards. Landslide analysis is too complex and needs systematic studies. CSIR-Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIR-CSIO) is pursuing a research on instrumental monitoring of landslide and developing prediction algorithms. Under this research a part of Jhakri landslide in Bari village area of Himachal Pradesh (H.P.), an Indian State in the Himalayas, is instrumented in May 2012, and realtime data is being acquired round the clock. Installed instrumentation is modular and two-tier structured system. It is observed that monitoring network will be populated with more sensors and three-four years data will be acquired to develop and validate prediction algorithms.
