In this paper, we report our findings on the radium content of soil samples and indoor radon activity measurement from sites located in Kohima town of Nagaland. Solid State Nuclear Track Detectors (LR-115 Type2 films) have been used. Radium content of the soil samples estimated have been found to vary from 14.56 to 27.29 Bq.kg-1 with an arithmetic mean value of 18.98 ±2.89 Bq.kg-1and a geometric mean value of 18.78 ± 1. 15 Bq.kg-1. The indoor radon activity concentration measured are found to vary from 25.9 to 75.5 Bq.m-3 with an arithmetic mean value of 49.2 ± 14.7 Bq.m-3 and a geometric mean value of 47.13 ± 1.35 Bq.m-3. A weak positive linear correlation has been observed between radium content of the soil samples and indoor radon activity concentration at the study sites.
