An experiment was undertaken during two consecutive years at Model Watershed, Rendhar, Jalaun, Bundelkhand under reclaimed ravinous land. The main objective was to find out the suitable cultivars of chickpea for companion cropping with Indian mustard for better yield and income. The watershed area is situated in the catchments of Pahuj river. The experimental soil was clay loam locally known as Kawar, having low organic carbon, total nitrogen, available P2O5 and high available K2O. Five cultivators of chickpea i.e, Radhey, Awrodhi, K 468, P.G.114 and T 3 were tested in companion cropping of Indian mustard cv. Varuna, Among tested varieties, Radhey gave highest yield of 27.90 q/ha closely followed by cv. Awrodhi (26.85 q/ha) in sole cropping. Cultivar K-468 also gave recognizable kernel yield by 25.00 q/ha in sole cropping under dry land condition. Cultivars P.G.114 and T3 were not reached to the yield level of Radhey, Awrodhi and K-468. Companion cropping of Radhey and Indian mustard gave better yield advantage, highest system productivity and maximum system net profitability by 12%, 30.37q/ha and Rs 95455/ha, respectively, followed by companion cropping  of cv. Awrodhi and Indian mustard. In general companion cropping of Indian mustard with all tested cultivators of chickpea proved superior over their sole cropping.
