An experiment with randomized complete block design including three replications and nine treatments was carried out in investigation field of Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture and Technology Science, to compare various combinations of chickpea intercropping. Among all the intercrop and chloropyriphos treatments, lowest per cent pod damage was recorded in chloripyrphos treatment with 4.83 and it was followed by chickpea + marigold, chickpea + mustard, chickpea + coriander and chickpea + linseed with 10.24, 12.49, 14.64 and 16.77 per cent pod damage respectively. Chickpea sole was found with highest pod damage per cent. Data on intercropped chickpea equivalent yield revealed that, the highest yield was recorded in chlorpyriphos treated treatment of 19.48 q ha-1, Followed by Chickpea + Marigold, Chickpea + Wheat, Chickpea + Coriander and Chickpea + Mustard with 19.13, 16.55, 16.43 and 15.52 q ha-1 respectively. Chickpea sole was recorded with 14.28 q ha-1. The highest cost benefit ratio was recorded in chlorpyriphos, Followed by Chickpea intercropped with Coriander, Marigold, Mustard and Lentil. Among the all treatment highest cost benefit ratio was recorded in Chickpea + Coriander (1:2.93), followed by lowest Chickpea + Wheat (1:2.22). All treatments are significant.

Keywords: Chickpea, Gram Pod Borer, Intercrops and Seasonal incidence.
