This paper considers an exponential chain dual to ratio cum dual to product estimator for estimating finite population mean using two auxiliary variables in double sampling scheme when the information on another additional auxiliary variable is available along with the main auxiliary variable. The expressions for bias and mean square error of the asymptotically optimum estimator are identified in two different cases. The optimum value of the first phase and second phase sample size has been obtained for the fixed cost of survey. To illustrate the results, theoretical and empirical studies have also been carried out to judge the merits of the suggested estimator with respect to strategies which utilized the information on two auxiliary variables.
