In my document page numbers in the contents are correct but when I click the hyperlink of list of tables and list of figures it goes to the acknowledgement page. Indexing is not proper. What shall I do? I am pasting the code below


\setlength{\parskip}{0.5cm plus2mm minus2mm}
\fancyhead[CO]{\large{\textbf{Chapter 1 : Introduction}}}
\fancyhead[CO]{\large{\textbf{Chapter 2 : Literature Review}}}
\fancyhead[CO]{\large{\textbf{Chapter 3 : Settlement Response of Geosynthetic Reinforced Granular fill Soft Soil}}}
\fancyhead[CO]{\large{\textbf{Chapter 4 : Determination of Equivalent Shear Modulus $G_e$ value for multilayer Geosynthetic System}}}
\fancyhead[CO]{\large{\textbf{Chapter 5 : Conclusions and Scope for Future Studies}}}

Thanks for posting the code of your overall driver file. However, without any of the files you're \including, it's not possible for anyone else to compile the file properly and then determine what's going on with the the incorrect file-internal hyperlinks or with the indexing process. – Mico Sep 7 '11 at 0:59
I agree with Miko. Could you please specify how you put the LOF and LOT in the TOC? if you do something like \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{LOF} \listoffigures, try putting \phantomsection in front of it (provided by hyperrefpackage) – Tom Bombadil Sep 7 '11 at 9:48
"\phantomsection in front of it" i.e. in front of \listofffigures and also in front of \listoftables. – Stephen Sep 8 '11 at 17:37

The "correct" way to include the List of Figures in the table of contents is to write

\cleardoublepage % to get the correct page in the ToC
\phantomsection  % to get a suitable anchor for hyperref

An easier way is to load the tocbibind package:


Then the simple \listoffigures command will work.
