Abstract: Three different varieties of rice were studied for proximate composition. Pusa-3 variety had the highest protein, fat, ash and lowest moisture content. Amylose content was highest in Jhelum variety. The differences in proximate composition between the varieties could be due to environmental as well as genetic factors. The information of the present investigation might be useful in processing and storage structures in food processing industry based on the variety difference of rice cultivars.
