V. Bhalerao, H. Kumar, V. Karambelkar, K. Deshmukh, D. Saraogi (IITB), G. C. Anupama, T. Stanzin, J. Stanzin (IIA) report on behalf of the GROWTH collaboration:

We followed up the localisation region of the GW candidate event S190426c with the GROWTH-India telescope. We obtained 31 r-band overlapping images covering a total area of 7.5 square degrees, with 3.9% probability of containing the GW counterpart. Exposures were 600 seconds long, and reached a typical depth of 20.5 magnitude. The field centres (given below) were chosen in coordination with ZTF and DECAM (GCN 24257) to cover the northernmost part of the sky not accessible to them. These fields contain 56 galaxies from the GLADE catalog and 5 galaxies from NED. Names and coordinates of the galaxies are also given below.

We do not find any new candidate counterparts in these fields.
