A total of 200 strains of Klebsiella pneumonaie isolated from various sources were studied for antibiotic resistance to eight drugs. Maximum resistance of 76.0 per cent was shown to ampicillin and minimum of 9.0 per cent to rifampicin. Sixteen out of 200 strains were sensitive to all the antibiotics. 184 strains were subjected to conjugative transfer study. R-plasmid was observed in 138 strains (75.0 per cent). Enbloc transfer was seen in 47 (25.54 per cent) strains and partial transfer in 91 (49.45 per cent) strains. Primary transfer was maximum for ampicillin (67.66 per cent) and minimum for gentamicin (8.88 per cent). Enbloc and partial secondary transfer was seen in 61 and 42 strains respectively in 103 transconjugants. Secondary transfer was maximum for ampicillin (71.28 per cent) and there was no transfer for gentamicin.
