It is known that underground instrumentation is useful at preconstruction, construction and post-construction stages of any project dealing with underground openings. Notwithstanding the above utility, it is strange that the only reliable approach to know the behaviour of a rockmass – the instrumentation – is not taken seriously in our country. The reasons quoted for not adopting instrumentation are normally high cost, low survival rate of instruments, non availability of good quality instruments and a limited numbr of agencies which can undertake instrumentation work. In the paper the authors have tried to pin-point the real reasons for not adopting the instrumentation a few case histories have been given for establishing the usefulness of instrumentation.
