To study the variability of characters under different parameters in the four selection procedures of 20 progenies of chickpea cross viz., GJG 0719 x SAKI 9516 in F5 generation in Desi chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) an experiment was conducted at Junagadh Agricultural University. The analysis of variance revealed significant differences among the cross and selection procedures, respectively for all the traits with few exceptions. Moderate to high heritability and GCV coupled with high expected genetic advance as per cent of mean was observed for PS(EF) and RBP for biological yield per plant by PS(HY); for 100-seed weight by PS(EF) and for seed yield per plant by RBP which indicated the predominant role of additive gene action in the expression of these traits in particular selection schemes.

Key words: Selection schemes, Variability, Heritability, Chickpea
