Gigas mutants are phenotypically dominant mutant plants with vigorous vegetative growth over control. From mutagenized M2 population of chickpea (cultivar- Vijay) 04 gigas mutants were isolated. All the isolated gigas were with elongated, rigid stem, larger and broader leaflets and 02 with extensive hairs on leaf and stem surface. However, their flowering tendencies are found to be altogether different. Off these one was sterile, one showed normal flowering with control, one was late flowering and one was early flowering gigas. The mutagens might have alter the sequence of GIGAS gene which controls the FT gene family in most of the Chickpea germplasm. Pleiotropism recessive gene might be a cause of altered flowering tendencies in mutants
