Recent endeavours from the global scientific and research community have resulted in realizing a massive number of customized, community oriented local and national grids. While each of these attempts has resulted in materialized frameworks that can successfully cater to a specific user community; this approach has daunted the vision of a single, unified, global, standards based Grid. Hence achieving Interoperability for the Co-existence of Grids with heterogeneous operating environments becomes the focus of today’s research. This paper begins with a brief description on the need for inter-operability among world wide Grids, and further elaborates on identifying the exact requirements for achieving the same in Production environments with Functional and Operational perspectives. As a case study, specific challenges related to interoperation between the Indian GARUDA [1] Grid and the European EGEE [2] Grids, are discussed in detail. Possible approaches and solutions to address these specific issues at various levels are dealt at great length.
