Abstract: TAUVEX is an Indo-Israeli collaborative mission to make photometric observations in the UV region. Using the narrowband filters positioned near 2175 Å feature, we plan to construct the UV bump in the extinction curve towards B type stars brighter than mv = 14. Archival data of TD1, Galex missions are used for stars brighter than mv = 10. We sample the distance to obtain the extintion at different location of the local ISM upto 2 kpc. Using a dust model having silicate, graphite and PAH as components, the extinction curve at different location of the Galaxy is fitted to constrain the dust characteristics.
