Executive Summary :

With the installation of new Multi-Application Solar Telescope (MAST) and associated back-end instruments it is now possible to obtain high quality solar observations. A narrow band imager and a polarimeter along with adaptive-optics system can provide simultaneous spectro-polarimetric observations in solar photosphere and chromosphere. These observations can be used for deriving the magnetic and velocity fields and thus could be used understanding various solar activities.
