Abstract: It is shown that every nontrivial linear or projective representation of the elementary subgroup of a Chevalley group over an algebra containing an infinite field must have degree greater than or equal to the square root of the dimension of the corresponding Chevalley-Demazure group scheme adding 1 and the equality emerges only if the Chevalley group is of type $ {A_n}$ for $ n \geq 1$.
