The aim of this paper is to provide a overview about accessing the geothermal potential present in Indian crust for heating purpose. The energy demand is increasing with the economic growth and the population. Due the use of fossil fuels, the amount of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere is increasing considerably, which results negative impact on climate and hence on the human life. Climate change is a real threat to our future, and a major cause is the use of fossil fuels to power homes and business. So the use of the fossil fuels must be reduced as a source of energy. This challenge forced the researchers and scientists to exploit some renewable energy resources which are friendly environmentally and economically as well. One of the renewable energy sources is also geothermal energy, whose exploitation is becoming more and more competitive as the prices of fossil fuels rise. The benefits of using geothermal energy as an alternative resource are extremely large.
