Abstract. The object of the present paper is to study pseudo M-projective Ricci symmetric manifolds denoted by . Several properties of
are established and it is proved that if the scalar curvature is constant then is an eigenvalue of the Ricci tensor corresponding to the eigenvector given by . In the section 3, assuming that the manifold is conformally flat, it is shown that if the M-projective Ricci tensor of this manifold is Codazzi type then this manifold becomes a quasi-Einstein manifold. In addition, it is proved that if is a torse-forming vector field with constant energy then must be a concircular.
