We observed the Type Ic supernova SN 2018ec (Kankare et al. ATel# 11156), with the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) on 2018 Jan 20.91 UT in the 1390 MHz band. We do not detect any radio emission at the supernova position RA, Decl (J2000): 10:27:50.77 -43:54:06.3. The 3-sigma upper limit of the flux density at the supernova position is 2.1 mJy. The large upper-limits are due to the emission from the host galaxy NGC 3256 (~ 0.5 Jy at 1.4 GHz). We thank the GMRT staff for scheduling these observations.
