Abstract. Let $(X,d)$ be a $G$-metric space, $f$, a self-map on $X$ and $x_0\in X$. Some misconceptions are brought about in findings of Mustafa et al [2], and a fixed point theorem for a Chatterjee-type $G$-contraction on a complete $G$-metric space is proved. More over, the unique fixed point p will be its contractive fixed point, in the sense that for each each $x_0\in X$, the $f$-iterates $x_0, fx_0, ..., f^nx_0, ...$ converge to $p$.
