The aim of this work is to analyze the dynamics of intraguild predation model with ratio-dependent functional response and time-delay. We examine the conditions for local stability and existence of Hopf-bifurcation. Also, the condition for global stability is established by using proper Lyapanov function. Finally numerical simulations are given to verify the proposed theoretical results and the system investigate through graphical illustrations.
