Nowadays, many of the Agile based project development teams are distributed geographically across the globe. The teams are divided into onshore and offshore that work together to achieve on a common target. The teams in turn work in small iterations to minimize the effect of change in software requirements and at the same time developing regular communication between them. However different factors such as physical distance and lack of proper communication between the onshore and offshore teams become a hurdle between them leading to misunderstandings about software requirements. Though there are many advanced way of communication like video conferencing, voice chatting is available, it certainly has several disadvantages in getting the task completed. This paper gives an insight about these challenges faced in many of the software industries and it would allow different stakeholders within agile based onshore /offshore setting to better understand these challenges in eliciting their requirements.
