Combined geochronology, geochemical signatures, and Nd isotopic compositions allow us to draw the following conclusions on the evolution of the Archaean granitoids of the Bundelkhand craton: (1) The TTGs of the craton had formed as a result of partial melting of juvenile mafic crust at different depths with contributions from newly formed felsic crust in the Paleoarchaean and older felsic crust in the Neoarchean; (2) The 2.5 Ga high-K granitoids of the craton had formed at convergent subduction settings by partial melting of the mantle wedge and pre-existing crust. Sanukitoids and hybrid granitoids originated in the mantle, the latter showing stronger crustal contributions, whereas abundant anatectic granitoids were the results of the melting of the continental crust.
