Abstract: India occupies first rank in the world by producing more than 25% of world food legume and largest producer of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) in the world. Chickpea is the third most important pulse among pulses in the world. Contribution of India is 64% in global chickpea production and productivity rank of the India is 29th. In India, chickpea crop ranks in the first position among pulses, occupying about 30% at total cultivated area of pulses and its contribution is 40% of the total pulse production. Observation were recorded on various morphophysiological traits in six parents and their six (F4) crosses. The results indicated that crosses between Pusa 256×F6-936 and Pusa 362 × Saki 9516 showed significantly lower membrane injury index (MII) i.e. 33.9 and 28.5% which were significantly less than their parents. Pusa 256 (47.9%), F6-936 (56.8%), Pusa 362 (34.1%) and Saki 9516 (55.9%). On the basis of results obtained, it is emphasized that parental lines having desirable physiological traits like relative water content (RWC), chlorophyll content and MII might have contributed directly for increasing productivity of new varieties under rainfed conditions.
