Erratic Climate changes all over the world have been a roaring concern in the past decade. Irrational floods are a natural disaster whose frequency as well as intensity, appears to have increased in recent years. This study aims at determining peak floods for different return periods on river Chambal. The frequency analysis was performed on 36 years of usable flood record. The Goodness of fit test was done for all distribution using D-Index test. These computed peak discharge is not only useful for assessing the flood frequency analysis in flood forecasting management but also is a potential tool for designing important hydraulic structures like Concrete Gravity Dam, Weir, Barrage, Bridge across the river, Guide bank etc.
