In many areas of Science, such as Industry, Agriculture, Biology and Medicine, while performing experiments, the problem of Multiple Comparison with Control is often encountered. Some new varieties (or test treatments) become of interest and existing one, called the control, is eventually be replaced by one of these new varieties. Balanced Incomplete Block Designs introduced by Bechhofer and Tamhane (1981), are appropriate for such comparison. This class of designs is latter extended to a larger class of partially Balanced type of designs by using the concept of Group Divisible Schemes.
