The main conclusions of present work are as follows:
1. Extinction curve for NGC 2076 is similar to that in our Galaxy.
The extinction varies linearly with inverse wavelength with a ratio of
total to selective extinction = 2.70
, which indicates that the dust grain size in
this galaxy is smaller than the Galactic dust particle size.
