Ascochyta blight caused by Ascochyta rabiei occurs in most of the chickpea growing areas of the world. Chickpea breeding material were screened against Ascochyta blight (AB) in the field using field screening technique. Out of 1000 stocks received as FLIP numbers, stocks were identified with consistent reaction to AB. FLIP 97–121C was tested for 8 years and average score of the stock was 2.7. Similarly FLIP 97–110C and FLIP 97–219C were tested for 6 years and gave an average disease score of 2.6. Consistent good resistance was observed in ‘ILC182’, ‘ILC200’, ‘ILC3279’, ‘ILC3912’, ‘ILC3919’, ‘ILC3274’, ‘ILC3856’, ‘ILC7374’, ‘ILC7795’, ‘PHC 15’ and ‘ICC12004’. ‘ICC12004’ used as the check remained resistant over the years of testing.
