A study on in vitro plant regeneration in kakrol was carried out. The combination of 1 mgl-1 BAP and 0.1 mg-1 NAA in MS media was found most suitable in callus induction followed by 0.2 mgl-1 BAP. The combination of 1 mgl-1 BAP and 0.1 mgl-1 NAA produced the highest number of multiple shoots from the callus. Half strength MS medium supplemented with IBA showed better performance than with IAA for number of roots but the later produced tallest shoot. Four types of explants, node, shoot tip, leaf and cotyledon, were used but only the cotyledon exhibited the best performance. Plantlets were successfully established in normal soils.
