At 11:30:00 UT on 2023 September 17 (35.92 days post-burst) upgraded Giant Meterwave Radio Telescope (uGMRT) observed the field of GRB 230812B (Fermi GBM team, GCN 34386) at a central frequency of 1.26 GHz for about 2 hours.

The standard 3C286 was used as a bandpass and flux density calibrator, while 1635+381 was used as a phase calibrator.

Based on preliminary analysis, we do not detect any source consistent with the location of the afterglow (A.P. Beardmore et al., GCN 34400; S. Giarratana et al., GCN 34552). The 3-sigma upper limit achieved is ~ 43 micro Jy.

We would like to thank the staff of the uGMRT for approving, executing,
and processing the observations through the DDT proposal (ddtC304; PI- Shraddha Mohnani).

The uGMRT is operated by the National Center for Radio Astrophysics of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research.
