Magnetodielectric composites with composition (1 – y)Ba0.885Sr0.1La0.01TiO3 – yNi0.8Zn0.2Fe2O4(BSLT-NZFO) where y  0.2, 0.3, 0.4 have been prepared by Hydroxide Co-precipitation route followed by microwave sintering. The X-ray diffraction pattern of the composites shows the formation of cubic spinel structure for the ferromagnetic phase and tetragonal pervoskite structure for the ferroelectric phase. Scanning electron micrographs (SEM) were taken to understand the surface morphology, grain size and grain growth of the composite. Dielectric and magneto dielectric (MD) properties of the composites also investigated at room temperature with different frequencies.
