In this paper, we derive some inequalities for linear canonical curvelet transform (LCCT). At the outset, the basic properties of LCCT including the admissibility condition, and Moyal's principle are stated. Thereafter, some notable inequalities and results related to the well-known Heisenberg- type inequalities are derived for linear canonical curvelet transform.
