In this article, we study the implication of the primitivity of a matrix near-ring M n (R) (n > 1) and that of the underlying base near-ring R. We show that when R is a zero-symmetric near-ring with identity and M n(R)has the descending chain condition on M n(R)-subgroups, then the 0-primitivity of M n(R)implies the 0-primitivity of R. It is not known if this is true when the descending chain condition on M n(R)is removed. On the other hand, an example is given to show that this is not true in the case of generalized matrix near-rings.
