This paper presents the results of 137 Cs content in soil samples around Narora Atomic Power Station using gamma spectrometric system. The transfer factors (TF) of different terrestrial matrices are also evaluated. It is observed that the range of 137 Cs content in Narora soil is 0.35 Bq/kg to 6.8 Bq/kg with an average value of 4.2 Bq/kg dry weight which is slightly higher than the literature value of different parts of country. The TF for different matrices are also been evaluated which show that the mean TF for fruit and vegetable is 1.62E-02 and 3.1E-02 respectively while highest TF amongst dietary items has been found to be in crop that is 4.49E-02.
