We study a sample of open clusters from our Galaxy using Gaia data. Making use of the high precision of Gaia proper motions, we determined membership probability of stars in the regions of the studied clusters. The membership catalogues could successfully decontaminate cluster stars from field stars. The most likely cluster members were then used to determine parameters like radius, distance, age, metallicity, initial mass function and relaxation time for the clusters. Furthermore, Galactic orbits for the studied star clusters were also determined. The sample of star clusters, thus helps to understand the kinematics of the Galactic disk.
