We observed the Type IIn supernova SN 2018zd, discovered by Koichi Itagaki and classified by Zhang et al. (ATel #11379), with the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) on 2018 March 12.39 UT in the 1390 MHz band. We do not detect any radio emission at the supernova position RA, Decl (J2000): 06:18:03.18, +78:22:00.90. The 3-sigma upper limit of the flux density at the supernova position is 240 uJy. Further observations are planned. We thank the GMRT staff for scheduling these observations.
