    Looks like a big one. This one came into your house? I think I had seen a similar spider posted by Abhishek. I think he can help with the id. Thanks for sharing.

    Atul,
    very nice specimen. Great find in your house :-). I cant confirm the id as i dont have access to any sources at the moment, but will get back to you. Useful info shared by Chandrashekharan, appreciate it.

    Atul,
    I think Chandrasekaran is right, it does look like Poecilotheria. Cant confirm the species though. These are venomous spiders, and I believe it is unusual to find one in a house. Please excercise caution when you encounter these.

    Surprised to see this species inside a house. Good find. In childhood days used to see many species of spiders as dad was doing his research.

    Cheers,
