Investigating basins in light of tectonics provides clues to understanding geological happenings serving a great deal to explore base metal deposits & hydrocarbon reservoirs depending on type of basin & sediment accumulations in different margins. This paper focusses on archiving thoughts in wake of tectonics to understand the interplay of divergent,convergent & strike-slip settings leading to association of different basins on continental & oceanic crusts. Association of intracratonic sag basin, rift basin & passive margin basin is proposed in an extensional set up and a trench,forearc, back-arc & foreland basin is proposed for a collisional set up in active margins.
