We present a list of candidate tailed radio galaxies using the TIFR GMRT Sky
Survey Alternative Data Release 1 (TGSS ADR1) at 150 MHz. We have visually
examined 5336 image fields and found 268 candidates for the tailed galaxy.
Tailed radio galaxies are classified as Wide Angle Tailed (WAT) galaxies and
Narrow-Angle Tailed (NAT) galaxies, based on the angle between the two jets of
the galaxy. We found a sample of tailed radio galaxies which includes 189 `WAT’
and 79 `NAT’ type sources. These newly identified tailed sources are
significant inclusion to the list of known tailed radio galaxies. The source
morphology, luminosity feature of the different candidate galaxies and their
optical identifications are presented in the paper. Other radio properties and
general features of the sources are also discussed.
