An experiment was conducted with five CMS lines and ten restorer lines to estimate the interrelationships among the grain quality parameters. Amylose content, gel consistency, water uptake, alkali value and L/B ratio recorded non significant correlation with grain yield. Significant positive correlation was noticed between amylose content and gel consistency. Selection based on amylose content, water uptake, L/B ratio, gel consistency will be effective.
