Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is the primary food source for more than a third of the world’s population. There is an urgent need of developing HYVs to increase rice productivity in India as well as North Eastern Hill Region. The present investigation was carried out to evaluate twenty four breeding line of rice with respect to performance, variability, heritability, character association and genetic divergence of sixteen qualitative characters and sixteen quantitative characters. The experiment was laid out at CPGS Campus, Umiam, Meghalaya in a randomized block design with three replications during kharif season, 2017.
