Chickpea is considered a source of quality protein in wgetarian diets. An experiment was canied out with three genotypes of chickpea P 9623, RS 11 and T 39-1 which differed significantly for their content. The experiment was conducted in deep vertisols under conserved soil moisture conditions. T 39-1, a high protein line was crossed with moderate and low protein parents P 9623 and RS 1l. The crosses showed dominance of low protein over high protein content. Near normal frequency distribution was obtained for protein content in F2 generations for both the crosses suggesting the role of atleast a few genes governing this character. Segregants with high protein content were recovered which could be used to enhance the nutritional value of Chickpea.
