260 strains of salmonellae were isolated, identified and serotyped into 7 different types. The most predominant serotype was Salmonella typhi, Phage type A. Phage type E9 and J1 were reported for the first time in Amritsar. Three strains of Salmonzlia typhi Phage type A, biotype II were resistant to chloramphenicol with M.I.C. 500 ug/ml. Salmonella typhimurium and salmonella senftenberg showed multidrug resistance and their M.I.C. ranged from 25 ug/ml to more than 1000 ug/ml and 100 ug/ml to 1000 ug/ml respectively. No resistance was found to gentamicin. Transferable drug resistance was observed in 85.9% to 100% of the strains.
