Abstract: The distinctiveness of candidate variety from already released varieties is an important criterion for granting the plant breeders right in the present era of intellectual property rights. A total of 48 lentil genotypes were grouped into distinct groups for each character based on different forms of morphological characters. Almost all the genotypes have orange cotyledon except PL 6 which has yellow cotyledon and only local accession IC 201738 had black testa colour. For plant type 29%, 65% and 6% genotypes were classified into erect, semi-spreading and spreading, respectively. Based on rust scoring 67% genotypes were resistant type and only 33% genotypes were susceptible type. Three different groups i.e., light green, medium green and dark green were formed and 15%, 69% and 17% genotypes were present in different groups, respectively. 79% genotypes were mottled type and 21% were non-mottled type.
