Abstract: Ragas are a fundamental concept to the Indian Classical music which provides immense scope for artists to improvise aesthetically. Classification of ragas have been studied since the inception but even the best models in practice have ambiguities in the classification of certain ragas and this has troubled many musi- cians and musicologists. We have constructed a new model to classify ragas which adheres to all the existing conventions and resolves these ambiguities.
