Recent gamma-ray and cosmic-ray observations have put strong constraints on the amount of primordial black holes (PBHs) in our universe. In this paper, we use the archival radio data of the inner Galactic Centre to constrain the PBH to dark matter ratio for three different PBH mass distributions including monochromatic, lognormal, and power law. We show that the amount of PBHs only constitutes a very minor component of dark matter at the Galactic Centre for a large parameter space. Copyright © 2020 The Author(s).
