We discuss, in this review, the existing models for the production of QGP in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions. We shall try to give a brief description of the models available for the pre-equilibrium production of QGP, ranging from soft process dominated QCD regime to the pQCD dominated regime. We also present the estimates for the initial energy density, the temperature and the thermalisation time -- available from each of these studies. Finally, we shall address the questions regarding thermalisation, color equilibration and chemical equilibration of the produced QGP in different experimental facilities.
