Pulses in India have long been considered as only source of poor man’s protein. India is the largest importer, producer and consumer of pulses (Jitendra et al., 2011). India accounts for 33% of the world area and 22% of the world production of pulses (Amarender, 2009). Pulses production in India 18.34 million tonne (ICAR 2013-14). Combining ability analysis is frequently employed to identify the desirable parents for inclusion in hybridization programme The genotypes K-851, Sublobata-02, IPM-2-3 were found, on evaluation as superior with respect to yield along with a number of yield components as well as and protein content and with respect to earliness in IPM2-3. These genotypes can be employed to develop early maturing protein rich high yielding lines. Seed yield plant-1 had shown significant positive correlation with pod width and positive correlation with number of pods plant-1 which also exerted positive direct effect on yield except protein content and these characters may be used as criteria for selection for simultaneous improvement in yield.
