In this study random sampling technique was used in which a sample of 30 Depressive patients and 30 Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) patients were collected with the age range of 18 to 40 years. The participants were administered Dimensional Personality Inventory developed by Bhargav (1997) and Emotional Maturity Scale developed by Singh and Bhargave (1991). The purpose of the study is to compare Depressive and OCD patients on Personality Inventory Test and Emotional Maturity Scale to find out any significant difference in overall personality and its various dimensions similarly as well as overall Emotional Maturity and its various dimensions. The result found no significant in overall personality and its dimensions. Likewise, the result also found no significant difference in overall Emotional maturity but there is significant difference under the dimensions of Emotional Progression and Independence which gives the impression that depressive patients are more emotionally progressed or improved  but less independent comparing with O.C.D. patients.
