PVA and doped PVA films were prepared by solution casting. The Change in electrical conductivity of pure PVA and transition elements FeCl_3 and NiCl_2·6H_2O doped PVA films with and without γ-irradiation in the temperature range 50-130°C has been investigated using four point probe technique. The dc electrical conductivity increases with increase in dopant concentration, with temperature and γ-irradiation. The results revealed that γ-irradiation enhances the electrical conductivity. The variation of electrical conductivity σ with temperature, before and after irradiation is due to the intermolecular hydrogen bonding between Fe^{3+} with OH group of PVA and Ni^{2+} with OH group of PVA. We found that Fe^{3+} doped PVA films show higher conductivity than Ni^{2+} doped PVA films.
