Fifty genotypes of lentil were evaluated under normal soil condition in the field of Institute of Agriculture, Visva-Bharati University to assess genetic divergence using Mahalanobis’s D2 analysis. The genotypes which were being developed at different crop improvement research centers across India and Bangladesh were collected for present investigation. Experiment was carried out over two crop seasons of 2017-18 and 2018-19 in Randomized Block Design with three replicates. Fifteen different clusters were formed as a result of pooled data analysis. Cluster I consisted largest number of genotypes. Twelve clusters had only single genotype in each of them. Maximum inter cluster distances was found between cluster II and cluster IV with eleven genotypes and one genotype in each, respectively. Cluster XIV having genotype ILL-10461 had shown maximum mean value for yield. Geographical and genetic diversity did not coincide while clustering.
