The motive of this paper is, to develop accurate and parameter uniform numerical method for solving singularly perturbed delay parabolic differential equation with non-local boundary condition exhibiting parabolic boundary layers. Also, the delay term that occurs in the space variable gives rise to interior layer. Fitted operator finite difference method on uniform mesh that uses the procedures of method of line for spatial discretization and backward Euler method for the resulting system of initial value problems in temporal direction is considered. To treat the non-local boundary condition, Simpsons rule is applied. The stability and parameter uniform convergence for the proposed method are proved. To validate the applicability of the scheme, numerical examples are presented and solved for different values of the perturbation parameter. The method is shown to be accurate of O(h2 + △t) . Finally, conclusion of the work is included at the end.
