We calculate moment of inertia of neutron star with different exotic constituents such as hyperons and (anti)kaon condensates and study its variation with mass and spin frequency. The sets of equation of state, generated within the framework of relativistic mean field model with density-dependent couplings are adopted for the purpose. We follow the quasi-stationary evolution of rotating stars along the constant rest mass sequences, that varies considerably with different constituents in the

We also explore the universal relations associated with some of the normalised properties, such as critical mass and moment of inertia for specific EoS or as a matter of fact constituents of the dense matter. Deviations in the universal relations for moment of inertia are observed at higher compactness. This study presents important results concerning the properties of neutron stars, that could be observationally verified in the near future using Square Kilometer Array telescope.
