The problem of the age of Indian laterites is examined on the basis of global models of weather patterns, palaeoclimatology, palaeomagnetism and continental drift. These models suggest that the climate suitable for laterite formation began during the Late Cretaceous and that these conditions became pronounced during the tertiary when optimum lateritization occurred on the Indian Peninsula.
