Phase velocities were determined for the New Delhi-Lahore profile by using data from these two stations and earthquakes located approximately on the great circle path through the stations. The phase velocities were found to be higher than those expected for normal continental structures and somewhat similar to those found by Brune and Dorman (1963) for the Canadian shield. A structural model, based on the phase velocity values of the CANSD model given by Brune and Dorman (1963) and consistent with the local geology, was evaluated and is presented herewith as the INDSD model.

It is postulated that high phase velocity values in the Lahore-New Delhi profile indicate the shield character of the crustal structure along the profile, as an extension of the Indian shield located south and southeast of it.
