To assess the impact of Bringing Green Revolution of Eastern India (BGREI) in different agro-ecological situations namely: rainfed uplands, rainfed low lands (shallow low land) and irrigated rice (hybrid, traditional),  the present study has been under taken in Bilaspur, Bastar and Raipur districts of  Chhattisgarh. The study was based on both secondary and   primary data, collected from the officials of state, districts and blocks as well as selected rice growers. The data recorded agricultural years 2010-11 and 2011-12. Findings revealed that the BGREI programme implemented in Chhattisgarh gave positive impact on dissemination of modern technologies of farmers' field, increased cropping intensity and minimized the yield gap between potential and actual yield of paddy. There is still wide scope for further improvement in the cropping intensity and productivity of paddy in the area under study. Persisted situation calls for more efficient action for diffusion of up to date technologies to farmers' field so that the cropping intensity of farmers' field and yield of paddy can be increased in Chhattisgarh State..
