The present study was conducted at the field of the Department of Plant Breeding and Genetic, University of Agriculture Faisalabad, Pakistan, during the crop season 2010-2011. Twenty genotypes of chickpea were evaluated for components of variability, heritability (h2bs) and interrelationships for various parameters. The higher value of heritability was found for all traits except plant height and seeds per pods. Correlation studies showed that biomass per plant, pods per plant, secondary branches per plant, seeds per pod and 100-seed weight were positive and significant at genotypic level but positive and highly significant at phenotypic level. Days taken to maturity were negative and non-significantly correlated with grain yield per plant at both genotypic and phenotypic levels.
