Hi Sandeep, welcome to AskUbuntu. Do you have any particular reason to prefer Chrome over Chromium? The latter can be easily installed from the Software Centre. – Luís de Sousa Oct 20 '13 at 8:53

Just double tap on google-chrome- stable.deb and wait until the ubuntu softeware center is open then click on install this method is better than " dpkg " and works perfectly

You should install the unmet dependencies, using sudo apt-get install lib32gcc1 lib32stdc++6 libc6-i386 But if Ubuntu refuses to do the install, it is a true dependency problem and you should seek an alternative to Google Chrome.
