Functionality associated with the plants play an important role in the health and growth of plants. Eleven endophytic bacterial isolates from different hosts were identified and were used for studying their functionality. Different endophytes identified by partial sequencing of 16S rDNA were: Bacillus licheniformis strain CRE1; B. subtilis, strain CNE215; B. subtilis strain PRE8; Bacillus sp. strain PNE17; B. cereus, strain PNE92; B. subtilis, strain LRE3; Bacillus sp. strain LRE7; Bacillus sp. strain WRE4; B. flexus strain WRE20; B. subtilis, strain ORE35 and Brevibacterium iodinum strain ORE27. All endophytes produced IAA, solubilized P, few produced siderophores, showed cellulose hydrolysis and exoglucanase activity. Majority of the endophytic did not show any inhibitory activity against Fusarium oxysporum. Establishment of different endophytic bacteria in chickpea and wheat plants at 60d of growth showed that three strains CNE215, PNE17 and ORE27 were detected in the chickpea roots with maximum 2.05 log CFU plant root-1 of strain PNE17. In case of wheat roots at 60d of growth another three strains LRE3, LRE7 and ORE27 were detected with 2.17 log CFU plant root-1 of strain LRE3. Total shoot nitrogen and P contents increased significantly after co inoculation with strain CNE215 in chickpea, and with ORE27 in wheat.
