Recent measurements of fusion and direct reactions in case of weakly bound stable nuclei at extreme sub-barrier energies using a sensitive off beam technique are presented. Deviation in slope of the fusion excitation function, as observed in case of medium heavy systems, is absent in the present asymmetric systems at these low energies. These results along with the study of capture reaction of the breakup fragments using particle- gamma coincidences is presented, thereby giving the current status of the ﬁeld.
