Studies on correlation among different component traits in rabi redgram with seed yield and their simultaneous path coefficient analysis from the data recorded on fifteen genotypes indicated that seed yield per plant had significant positive relationship with pods per plant, harvest index, plant height, secondary branches per plant, days to flowering, days to maturity and primary branches per plant. Path coefficient analysis revealed maximum positive direct effect of pods per plant followed by harvest index, days to flowering and pod length on seed yield per plant.
