We conducted a pathfinder project with the GMRT to detect low-mass YSOs at low frequencies, and present for the first time observations of protostars at 325 and 610 MHz. We detect the three target sources, T Tauri, L1551 and DG Tauri at both frequencies and present a catalogue of other sources identified within the primary beam of the GMRT. We present the SEDs associated with these objects, and search for evidence of non-thermal emission such as synchrotron or gyro-synchrotron emission. Non-thermal emission is known to arise for more evolved YSOs (Class III), but has only been detected in a handful of Class I and II YSOs, which constitute our target sample.
