Every old thing has to be modified into a newer version to stay in par with this world. This theory of changing applies to every field and Software development field is no exception. In all fields, especially Software field, time has become an important constraint. We have many models in Software Development lifecycle model. But it’s been so long since we have a revised software development lifecycle model, due to a lack of development we many times land in a situation where we are not able to finish our project in time which paves way for the loss of project to the companies. Thus to avoid all these chaos in time and make the process of developing a software a much faster and simpler one, This paper hasproposed a new kind of Software development model called chakra. We took two life cycle models- Prototyping and Spiral Model and combined them with some small modifications to land into our model Chakra. Chakra will have all the benefits of both Prototype and Spiral model and will not have their disadvantages. As we move into this paper we can find its usage and understand why this method was proposed.
