15 chilli genotypes were grown under randomized block design with two replication during Kharif season, 2016-17 to study the genetic correlation and path coefficient analysis for 15 different quantitative and qualitative traits. The correlation study revealed that plant height at 90 DAT, plant height at 120 DAT, secondary branches at 90 DAT, fruit weight, stalk length and fruits per plant had significant and positive correlation at genotypic as well as phenotypic level suggesting the direct selection of these traits as less prone to environmental factors. The path coefficient analysis had direct positive via yield through number of fruits per plant, fruit weight, number of secondary branches at 90 DAT and ascorbic acid content. Selection for these traits would be more beneficial and rewarding in concentrating the economical yield.

Keywords: Chilli, Correlation coefficient, Path coefficient analysis and Yield.
