In this paper, the concept of k-regular fuzzy matrix as a general-
ization of regular matrix is introduced and some basic properties of a k-regular
fuzzy matrix are derived. This leads to the characterization of a matrix for
which the regularity index and the index are identical. Further the relation
between regular, k-regular and regularity of powers of fuzzy matrices are dis-
