Abstract: Owing to the growing concern about the environmental degradation associated with newlineindustrial activities, our society is increasingly using biodegradable and renewable natural newlinematerials. In this view, cellulose-based natural fibers, known as lignocellulosic fibers, newlinebecome a promising solution.The domestic Indian polymer market has increased 15-20% newlinecompound annual growth rate considered to the past few years and reached to 3.0 trillion in newline2016. The specific mechanical properties, that is mechanical properties-to-density ratio, of newlinecomposite materials being generally higher than those of conventional materials is one newlineamongst many reasons behind the wide acceptance of composite materials ranging from newlinehousehold appliances, sporting and leisure goods, civil and construction structures, newlinetransportation, aerospace and high performance structures. Improving the flexural properties newlineof the parent composites through hybridization means an improvement in harnessing the newlineproperty potential of the materials and thus reducing the demand for materials of the newlineproducts. newlineThe major concern of efficient usage of fiber reinforced composites in aircraft, marine and newlineautomobile industry is lack of understanding of the effect of strength parameters and low newlinevelocity impact damage due to lateral impact by the tools, debris and foreign objects. In this newlinecontext, many researchers have investigated the impact force by conventional methods that newlineon carbon fiber reinforced composites, yet only countable works have been done on low newlinevelocity impact conditions for hybrid composites. The objective of the work was to newlinecharacterise mechanical properties like tensile strength, flexural strength, interlinear shear newlinestrength, impact resistance and analysis of glass, jute and hybrid of both fiber reinforced newlinepolyester composites under low velocity impact conditions. newlineThe 60% of fiber volume fraction of woven glass and
