The binary encounter approximation has been used for calculations of electron impact single ionization cross-sections for F, Cl, Br and I and double ionization cross-sections for Br and I. Contributions of ionization from inner shells have also been included in the calculations. Hartree-Fock momentum distribution has been used for the bound electron as far as possible. The results have been found to be in satisfactory agreement with experimental observations.
