Abstract : The UVIT started observations on 30th November 2015 and has been obtaining data since then. Several Science targets have been observed so far, including the demostrative observations carried out during the Performance verification phase. The first science paper from the UVIT presented the discovery of a possible post-AGB companion to a Blue Straggler star in the open cluster NGC 188. Several studies are starting to produce interesting results on topics ranging from Globular Clusters, Galaxy Clusters, Planetary Nebulae and AGN. I plan to present some of the science results which highlight the resolution, spectral sampling and timing capability of the UVIT.
