In the present study, Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) a macro-scale hydrological model was used to simulate the hydrology of Chambal river basin of India. This analysis was carried out to generate water balance components including runoff, evapotranspiration and baseflow at 0.25*0.25degree grid for the year 2000 and to estimate daily variation of runoff over entire basin. The effect of change of Land cover, slope and soil type on runoff also investigated in this study. Simulation of VIC model showed the annual runoff generation over the basin is 50%.
