Abstract India being a tropical country has high environmental temperature during summer months which has detrimental effect on growth, feed efficiency, livability and performance of poultry. High temperature (>30ï‚°C) accompanied by high humidity is one of the most important stress inducing factors affecting performance of broiler. Two hundred and eighty-eight, day-old commercial broiler chicks were subjected to six dietary treatments consisting of four replicates of twelve chicks in each replicate to find the effect of following treatments, namely;T1-control,T2-0.5% Indian gooseberry ,T3-1.0% Indian gooseberry ,T4-0.02% probiotic , T5-0.5%Indian gooseberry +0.02% probiotic and T6-1.0% Indian gooseberry +0.02% probiotic in the basal diet of broiler reared in hot humid weather up to 6 weeks age.The body weight, weight gain, feed intake, feed efficiency, carcass yield, livability and cost of production were studied. Standard managemental practices were followed during the experimental period. Supplementation of Indian gooseberry, probiotic and their combination in broiler diet did not show any significant effect on body weight, weight gain, feed intake and carcass characteristics. Feed conversion ratio of broilers fed 0.5% Indian gooseberry supplemented diet was improved significantly (P<0.05) compared to the birds fed control diet.The mortality in broilers fed Indian gooseberry supplemented diet was zero.The cost of production of broilers was less in all supplemented groups compared to control. The cost of production Rupees per kilogram live weight in 0.5% Indian gooseberry and 0.02%probiotic supplemented groups was reduced to Rs.3.68 and 3.44 than the control group.
