Field equations in a scalar-tensor theory of gravitation proposed by Saezand Ballester (1985) are obtained with the aid of (i) Friedmann-type metric (ii) a non static plane symmetric metric and (iii) spatially homogeneous Bianchi type – III metric. Some cosmological models corresponding to perfect fluid and bulk viscous fluid are presented. Physical and kinematical properties of the models are also discussed.
