Like most other astrophysical phenomenon, it is implicitly assumed that the pulsar fluxes obey the inverse-square law. In this project, effort was made to study the claims for inverse Square law violation in the flux of Radio Pulsars as claimed by Singleton et al[1], in based on the assertion that the relative convergence factor for an inverse square law (1/r2) obeying flux of a radio pulsar is 105 times larger than the case of 1/r obeying flux emission, using the latest data obtained from Australian Telescope National Facility (ATNF) Pulsar Catalogue[2]. After running several simulations, it was found that there is no conclusive evidence suggesting any form of Inverse Square Law Violation for radio pulsar fluxes.
