The effectiveness of user query plays a vital role in retrieving highly relevant documents in keyword based search engine. Due to the lack of domain knowledge, users tend to post very short queries which do not express their information need clearly, which reduces the precision and re-call of the search. Indian logic Ontology based Automatic Query Refinement system has been proposed to overcome this problem in search engine. This system proposes an Indian logic ontology-based automatic Query Refinement model for the exploitation of full-fledged domain ontology to support semantic search in keyword based search engine. Indian logic based ontology has elaborate structure, which can reuse, enriched and detailed information about the concepts. This system formulates effective query using Indian logic Ontology in order to increase the relevancy of documents retrieved.
