GPS measurements are precise enough to allow a determination of tectonic motion within a few years. This can be made using a network of permanent stations, dynamically defined, using an inertial reference frame that moves with the geo-center. Comparing the position of these points over time, it’s possible to compute the velocity and direction of the plate motion. The goal of this work is to describe the hypothetical tectonic motion using a network of GPS permanent stations located approximately in the center of Imphal Valley. We report data processing results of GPS measurements of crustal deformation at Imphal, Manipur. The results suggest that the site of Imphal valley is not located on the Indian plate. The site is actually located on the Burma plate.
