A field experiment was carried out using two varieties of pea (Rachna and local cultivar Makhyatmubi) and one Indian mustard (NRCHB 101)intercropping systems to determine the competition among these and economics of each intercropping system. The intercropping systems were assessed on the basis of existing competition and economic indices such as land equivalent ratio (LER), relative crowding coefficient, aggressivity, competitive ratio (CR), relative crowding coefficient (RCC) and monetary advantage index (MAI). Yields of individual crop were higher when grown as sole crops compared with their intercropping. Competition ratio and aggressivity value were higher in the intercropping of Makhyatmubi with Indian mustard in row ratio of 1:1. Whereas dMakhyatmubi intercropped with Indian mustard in row ratio of 2:1 gave the maximum Makhyatmubi Equivalent Yield (1830 kg/ha), Land Equivalent ratio (1.51), Relative Crowding Coefficient values (8.23) and Monetary Advantage Index (Rs.60883/ha) indicating a definite yield and monetary advantage.
