Dhanashakti is identified by its major distinguishing features such as large, globular and dark grey grains; compact to semi-compact and cylindricallanceolate panicles with shining outer surfaces of the grains; purple pigmentation of the glumes, mixed anther colour (mostly purple and some cream colour); anthocyanin pigmentation of the first leaf sheath; and mixed node pigmentation (mostly purple, but some green). These characteristics are similar to those of the ICTP 8203.
