Poonam Chandra (NCRA-TIFR) and A. J. Nayana (NCRA-TIFR) reports:

We carried out Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) observations of
GRB 151027A (GCN Circ. 18478) at 610 MHz band on 2015 Nov 19.19 UT. We
detect the  radio afterglow of the GRB in the Swift error circle (GCN 
Circ. 18482).
The 610 MHz band flux density of the afterglow is 522+/-94 uJy. Map rms is
56 uJy.

Further observations are planned. We thank GMRT staff for making these
observations possible.
