Soft set theory introduced by Molodtsov is a new mathematical approach to handle the uncertainty problems. It is a family of subsets associated with each parameter in a soft space. Hybrid models have been found to be more useful than the individual components. Earlier fuzzy set and soft set were combined to form fuzzy soft sets and similarly intuitionistic fuzzy soft sets (IFSS) were introduced. Like the soft sets, IFSS is also a notion which allows fuzziness over a soft set model. So far, many attempts have been made to define this concept. Maji et.al defined intuitionistic fuzzy soft sets and several operations on them. Following the definition of soft sets provided by Tripathy et.al (2015) through characteristic function, in this paper we improve the group decision algorithm proposed by Tripathy et al earlier and provide an application in handling the decision making problem. © 2016 IEEE.
