     The generalized relativistic effective core potential (GRECP) approach is employed in
     the framework of multireference single- and double-excitation configuration interaction
     (MRD-CI) method to calculate the spin-orbit (SO) splitting in the $^2P^o$ ground
     state of the Tl atom and spectroscopic constants for the $0^+$ ground state of TlH.
     The 21-electron GRECP for Tl is used and the outer core 5s and 5p pseudospinors
     are frozen with the help of the level shift technique. The spin-orbit selection scheme
     with respect to relativistic multireference states and the corresponding code are
     developed and applied in the calculations. In this procedure both correlation and
     spin-orbit interactions are taken into account. A [4,4,4,3,2] basis set is optimized for
     the Tl atom and employed in the TlH calculations. Very good agreement is found for
     the equilibrium distance, vibrational frequency, and dissociation energy of the TlH
     ground state ($R_e=1.870 \AA, \omega_e=1420 cm^{-1}, D_e=2.049 eV$) as
     compared with the experimental data ($R_e=1.868 \AA, \omega_e=1391 cm^{-1},
     D_e=2.06 eV$).
