We report on an observation of SN 2006jc on 2008 June 27 by the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) in the L-band (mean observing epoch 07.84 UT). Radio emission from the SN was not detected. The 2 sigma upper limit at the central frequency of 1397.5 MHz was 0.154 mJy at the supernova location. The corresponding map rms is 0.077 mJy. We thank the staff of GMRT who made this observation possible and C. H. Ishwara-Chandra for help with the imaging analysis. GMRT is run by the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics (NCRA) of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR).
