Genetic variability was studied in 60 genotypes of blackgram. The analysis of variance indicated that the mean sum of square due to genotypes were highly significant for all the characters suggesting the presence of good deal of variability in material studied. The estimates of genotypic parameters revealed that differences between the estimates of GCV and PCV were found high for most of the characters. Higher estimates of GCV were observed for seed yield per plant, number of pod per plant, cluster per plant and harvest index. However, maximum heritability was found for 100-seed weight followed by number of pod per plant and pod length. While, maximum genetic gain was observed for number of pod per plant followed by seed yield per plant. The characters viz., cluster per plant, number of pods per plant, seed yield per plant and harvest index per cent showed high GCV, heritability and genetic gain. Hence, selection can be made for improvement of these characters.
