We observed the Type IIn supernova SN 2017hcc (Mauerhan et al. ATel# 10911), with the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) on 2017 Nov 12.68 UT in the 1390 MHz band. We do not detect any radio emission at the supernova position RA, Decl (J2000): 00:03:50.58 -11:28:28.78 The 3-sigma upper limit of the flux density at the supernova position is 135 uJy. Further observations are planned. We thank the GMRT staff for scheduling these observations.
