Global demand for high-quality rice has grown substantially in recent years and continues to trend upward due to taste preferences and a greater interest in healthy diets. Most rice quality traits are inherited in a complex way and may be affected by multiple genes and environmental factors. Experiment was conducted by using 64 rice accessions at Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru collage of agriculture and research institute, karaikal during Rabi 2016. Lattice square design with three replications was followed for phenotypic data and analyzed by using R. software version 3.4.0. Molecular analysis was done by using functional markers for pericarp color and fragrance. Out of 64 rice accessions seven are red seeded and 57 white seeded, which could be easily identified in the seedling stage itself by using functional marker RID 12 developed by Sweeney et al., (2006) that perfectly targets the 14 bp functional nucleotide polymorphism with in bHLH gene. However, for fragrance, none of 64 genotypes were scented as reflected from the mono-morphism of the target allele.
