*Chevalley constructed groups of Lie type starting from complex*

simple Lie algebras. That also gave a presentation for the groups. Using

Bruhat decomposition one can write any element of these groups in normal

form. In this talk we will describe an algorithm to solve the word problem

for classical Chevalley groups in similar line to the row-column operations

for $SL(n,q)$. We will illustrate this by taking example of $C_l$ type. This is

joint work with Ayan Mahalanobis.
