This investigation was carried out to identify superior genotypes of chickpea on the basis of yield and milling quality traits grown under rice fallow condition during genetic coefficient of variation, heritability and genetic advance were observed for total pods/plant, effective pods/plant, 100 seed weight, seed yield/plant and biological yield. Seed yield shared positive and significant association with harvest index, biological yield, effective pods/plant, total pods/plant, secondary branches and primary branches. Biological yield, harvest index, days to maturity, effective pods/plant and seeds/pod exhibited maximum direct positive effect on seed yield/plant. Some lines such as ‘ICCV 07111’, ‘Pusa 372’, ‘Vaibhav’, ‘PG 186’, ‘JG 16’, ‘DCP 92-3’, ‘JG 11’ and ‘JG 14’ had better milling quality traits
