Abstract: In this paper we present the current status of development of the Near Infrared PICNIC Imager (NIPI), which will be the first near-ffi instrument on IUCAA telescope. When used at one of the Cassegrain side ports of the telescope, it gives a plate scale of 0.8 arcsee per pixel at the PICNIC detector array with a field of view of 2.5 arc minutes. It offers imaging capabilities in J, H and K filter bands, with the reimager optimized in H-band for which almost 90encircled energy of a. point source is contained in a. pixel. Hardware and software for infrared readout are being developed at IUCAA.
